BEAMSVILLE RESIDENT WINS LOTTO 6/49 GUARANTEED $1 MILLION PRIZE
Toronto, ON – Cory Raymond of Beamsville has that “6/49 feeling” after winning a Guaranteed $1 Million Prize in the December 4, 2021 LOTTO 6/49 draw.
Cory, who works in construction, said it was a regular day when he discovered his win. “I went to purchase a ticket for the next draw and checked this ticket that has been in my car for weeks,” he shared while at the OLG Prize Centre in Toronto to pick up his winnings. “I was in disbelief when I saw the number of zeroes!”
When the 45-year-old father of three shared his big news with his wife and daughters he said they screamed with joy and didn’t believe him at first. “I had to show them the validation slip,” he said.
He plans to pay some bills and save for his children’s education.
