Turns out there was only one winner also - some lucky schmuck in Alberta or something. What makes it worse is that Alberta is already the richest province in Canada, thanks to gasoline costing an 'arm in a lake'.
Like most Canadians, I played the lotto last night, $10.00 worth (I believe they actually sold something like $90 mil in tickets for this draw - that's a lot considering Canada's latest estimated population is sitting at 32,270,507). Anyway - the upside to this story is that I, along with 871,035 others, won ten bucks. Sweet. Get three numbers right out of the required six - win ten bucks. What a country.
** update: As I mentioned above, I didn't win the $54 mil - BUT! - I did just get an email from email@example.com (please SPAM them) saying I won the following:
Your email address attached to ticket star number (4-5) drew the EUROMILLION lucky numbers 3-19-26-49-50 which consequently won the draw in the Second category. You have been approve for the star prize of EUR € 667,248.26Aww Yeah baby.
I have another interesting fact: did you hear about Brian Diesbourg? He's an Argo's fan who has a shot at tonight's game to kick a 50 yard field goal. If he splits the uprights - $1 mil goes in his pocket. Now that is WAY easier than playing 6/49.
