This is a treat and no trick for someone holding a $1 million winning Lotto Max ticket that expires on Oct. 30, 2016. A ticket sold in Burnaby for the Oct. 30, 2015 draw matched 7/7 numbers for a $1 million Maxmillions prize.

Lottery players should check their pockets, drawers and secret hiding places to see if they hold the $1 million ticket. Winners have one year from the draw date printed on the ticket to claim their prize.
