It was a very good Friday indeed for an anonymous Comox Valley lottery player, who is more than $120,000 richer.

The British Columbia Lottery Corporation (BCLC) confirmed Monday a winning ticket was sold in the Valley for Friday’s Lotto Max draw — a nationwide lottery with weekly jackpots.

Although Friday’s $40 million jackpot (matching seven out of seven numbers) wasn’t won, a ticket sold in the area matched six of seven numbers plus the bonus, netting the lucky recipient $124,601.80.

BCLC spokesperson Laura Piva-Babcock said the winner has one year to claim their prize.
