The next LOTTO 6/49 draw is on Wednesday for an estimated $9 million jackpot and the Guaranteed $1 Million Prize Draw. Players have until 10:30 p.m. to purchase their tickets.

Meanwhile, Marcel Leclaire of Sudbury played Encore for the Sept. 2 Lotto 6/49 draw and won $1 million.

He said visiting loved ones is in the plans for his big windfall.

“I have seven bothers and sisters who live in Ontario and across Canada, including British Columbia. My dream is to travel west to visit family, taking time to see the country and reconnect with the people I love.”

Leclaire’s winning ticket was purchased at Petro Canada on Lorne Street in Sudbury.
