TORONTO – Ontario residents should really check their Lotto 649 tickets this morning.

A single winning ticket was sold in the province for last night’s 64$ million grand prize — the biggest jackpot in Canadian lottery history.

The winning ticket was sold in Mississauga.

A guaranteed prize of $1 million was also offered in last night’s draw, and it went to a ticket holder in Quebec.

There were four secondary prize winning tickets worth $116,915.80 sold in Ontario, two were in Toronto, one in Kitchener and one in the Barrier area.

The previous Canadian lottery record was $63.4-million for a 6-49 draw in April, 2013.

That pot was split among four ticketholders, with each banking nearly $16-million.

As lottery fever gripped the country ahead of last night’s draw convenience stores and lottery kiosks from coast to coast to coast were packed with customers dreaming of striking it rich.
