CHATHAM RESIDENT WINS $1 MILLION ON LOTTO 6/49 GOLD BALL DRAW
Toronto, ON – Henry Dumouchel of Chatham can “find his possible” after winning a LOTTO 6/49 prize worth $1 million in the Gold Ball Draw on November 26, 2022.
Henry, a retired bus driver, says this is his first major win. "I play the lottery twice a week. I've been playing LOTTO 6/49 since the beginning – it's now officially my favourite game!" he shared while at the OLG Prize Centre in Toronto to pick up his winnings.
"I thought I won $1,000 at first. When I gave my ticket to the cashier, she told me it was too many zeroes for it to be a $1,000 win. I pinched myself so many times – I didn't believe it. I was at a loss for words," he said.
The father and grandfather said he plans to purchase a new motorcycle and celebrate his win with a family dinner. "This is a dream come true," he concluded.
LOTTO 6/49 offers players a chance to win two multi-million dollar jackpots every Wednesday and Saturday, for the same $3 per play.
The Classic Draw offers a fixed $5 million jackpot for every draw, while the Gold Ball Draw guarantees a $1 million prize, or the growing jackpot that starts at $10 million and can exceed $60 million. Click here for more information about the new LOTTO 6/49.
The winning ticket was purchased at Colonial Variety on King Street in Harrow.
