Half of the jackpot will go to the lucky winner, with the rest going towards the Edmonton Oilers Community Foundation and Ronald McDonald House Charities of Northern Alberta.
Back in July 2014, the Edmonton Eskimos went through a similar situation when a jackpot of more than $70,000 went unclaimed.
The puck drops at 8 p.m. Wednesday at Rogers Place.
