FIND YOUR POSSIBLE: KANATA RESIDENTS WIN $5 MILLION LOTTO 6/49 CLASSIC JACKPOT

Toronto, ONDonna Rathwell and Norman Hewitt of Kanata can “find their possible” after winning $5 million in the LOTTO 6/49 Classic Jackpot on March 20, 2024.  

Donna and Norman, a married couple, have played the lottery together for more than 30 years. “Norm never believed we would win, but I always told him, we have to have hope!” said Donna as they collected their winnings at the OLG Prize Centre in Toronto.

Norman shared more about the moment they realized they had won big. “I received the life changing email and was in shock! I had to go down to a retail location to verify all the zeros I was seeing! Could this be real?”

Together, Donna and Norman plan to travel the world, while making sure their family and loved ones are well taken care of.

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.
