Lucky Lotto 6/49?

Imagine checking your lucky Lotto 6/49 numbers and realizing that you just got 5 out of the 6 numbers plus the bonus number.

Oh, so close to winning the big jackpot but no luck there...
hey, at least second prize should be worth something worth while... right???

Well, maybe not. You might not be as rich as you think.

Check out the results from Wednesday's Lotto 6/49 draw:

An amazing 239 people hit the second best result! Unfortunately, they had to share the pot, and thus ended up winning less than the third prize winners. According to the CBC, the "winners will be splitting the prize, getting $1,193.70 each, compared to the $131,000 awarded to last week's winners." Now, that's got to hurt!

I just wonder if you can decline the use of your bonus number ;)
