Someone will be starting the new year a whole lot richer after winning last week’s Lotto Max jackpot.

A ticket sold for in South Delta was the only one in Canada to match all seven numbers in the Friday, Dec. 28 draw, meaning whoever bought it is now $39.5 million richer.

Friday night’s winning numbers are 05, 13, 14, 16, 17, 29, and 49, with bonus number 18.
