There are just two weeks left to claim a Lotto 6/49 prize worth $23,635.30 from the Saturday, March 25, 2023, draw on a ticket that the Ontario Lottery and Gaming Corp. says was sold in Barrie.

The winning selection was 11-12-13-16-22-28 with Bonus No. 27, according to an OLG news release.

Players must match five of the six main numbers, plus the bonus number to win the second prize. 

Players have one year from the draw date to claim their prize, the OLG said.

"If you believe you bought the winning ticket, or lost it, please be prepared to provide specific details including where and when your ticket was purchased when calling OLG Customer Care," the lottery corporation said.

The number to call is 1-800-387-0098.

OLG added there are several ways to check lottery tickets:

  • Scan your ticket using the OLG App.
  • Check winning numbers on or sign up to have the winning numbers emailed to you.
  • Call the OLG WIN! Line at 1-866-891-8946.
  • Visit a lottery retail location and use the self-serve ticket checker or hand it to the retailer.

So that you don’t forget to claim your lottery prize, OLG suggests lottery players:

  • Sign their ticket right after it’s purchased.
  • Keep the ticket in a safe and memorable location until draw time.
  • Check the ticket as soon as the draw is complete; or
  • Make lottery ticket purchases on and receive email notification if your ticket has won a prize.
