HAMILTON RESIDENT WINS LOTTO 6/49 GUARANTEED $1 MILLION PRIZE

Toronto, ON Paul Ferguson of Hamilton has that “6/49 feeling” after winning a Guaranteed $1 Million Prize in the June 25, 2022 LOTTO 6/49 draw.

Paul, a 74-year-old father of one, said when he scanned the ticket on the OLG App, they heard the winning jingle and realized he was a big winner. “I was so excited I couldn’t sleep,” he shared while at the OLG Prize Centre in Toronto to pick his cheque.

Paul said he plans on purchasing a new wheelchair. “My wife and I are very simple – we just want to live an easy, happy life,” he said. “We’re going to share this with our daughter – we want to purchase a house for her and enjoy seeing her live a happy life,” he smiled.
