MISSISSAUGA RESIDENT’S DREAMS ARE NOW DREAMIER WITH $250,582 LOTTO MAX WIN
Toronto, ON – Dennis Dang of Mississauga has $250,582.40 to put toward his dreams after winning a LOTTO MAX second prize in the December 17, 2021 draw.
Dennis, a 31-year-old investor relations manager, said when he checked his ticket using the OLG App he was speechless. “My girlfriend asked me what was wrong, and I couldn’t get the words out,” he laughed. “We rescanned it and couldn’t be more thrilled – especially because it was right before Christmas!”
Dennis said he is still in shock over his win. “It feels like a lot of weight has been lifted given I am still a young professional trying to establish myself.”
He plans to purchase a vehicle and pay down his mortgage. “I already spoiled some family over Christmas,” he smiled.
