Someone has come forward to claim the $21 million prize from Saturday’s Lotto 649 draw.

The Atlantic Lottery Corporation has indicated the ticket holder is from the Avalon Peninsula in Newfoundland, but will not release more specific details until the winner is verified.

A representative for ALC also said it can sometimes take days for a winning ticket to be confirmed and the official winner to be announced.

Once it’s claimed the $21 million prize will be the largest given by ALC so far this year.

The largest prize ever in Newfoundland and Labrador was $25 million, which was awarded to a group of people from Happy Valley - Goose Bay in 2010.

    I hope it is someone who really, really needs it and has a huge family who all need a break. That would really make my day if I heard it was someone like that. I just hope it is not someone who already has plenty of money.
