STONEY CREEK RESIDENT WINS $734,061 LOTTARIO JACKPOT

TORONTO, ONAndrija Konjek of Stoney Creek won “Ontario’s jackpot” – $734,061.70 in the March 27, 2021 LOTTARIO draw.

Andrija, a 72-year-old retired grandfather, said he’s an occasional lottery player. “When I checked my ticket at the store, I saw the number ‘7’ and lots of numbers after,” he shared while at the OLG Prize Centre in Toronto to pick up his winnings. “I waited a few days and had my son check my ticket. My wife and I couldn’t believe it!”

He plans to use his winnings to visit family when it’s safe to travel again and save some for his children.
