Large rollovers often bring out syndicates of players who pool together and only play when the Lotto 6/49 jackpot gets over a certain amount and it’s quite possible that the syndicate is aware of the win and are making decisions about the cash. It is of course equally possible that the jackpot was won by a single ticket holder who has not yet checked the results.

So if you have a Lotto 6/49 ticket from last Saturdays draw sitting in your purse or wallet, maybe it’s time you took it out and checked those winning numbers. You may just be $40 million richer and not even know it yet.
