COLLINGWOOD RESIDENT WINS $2 MILLION WITH ONTARIO 49

TORONTO, ON Donald Turner of Collingwood is celebrating after winning an ONTARIO 49 top prize worth $2 million in the June 11, 2022 draw.

Donald, retired from the automotive industry, said he is a regular lottery player and chooses what games to play based on which ones have large jackpots and bonus draws.

“I was at home when I checked my tickets using the OLG App,” he explained, while at the OLG Prize Centre to pick up his winnings. “I didn’t believe the prize amount – I kept counting the zeroes, but my brain kept telling me it was $2,000,” he said.

The self-proclaimed car enthusiast said it’s an unbelievable feeling. “I was surprised at first – then shocked when I saw the $2 million. It feels good!”

He plans to enjoy his retirement with travel. “I will enjoy a balanced life, while checking some things off my bucket list. I’ve always wanted to go to the Calgary Stampede,” Donald concluded.
