A P.E.I. resident has won $8.6 million in the latest Lotto 6/49 draw.

Atlantic Lottery says a ticket bought on its website for Saturday's draw won a jackpot of $8,601,730.20.

The purchaser listed a P.E.I. residence and their identity has been verified. However, an Atlantic Lottery spokesperson said in an email it won't identify the winner until a confirmation process is completed.

The ticket holder will be sent further instructions via email.
