WOODBRIDGE RESIDENT’S DREAMS ARE NOW DREAMIER WITH A $1 MILLION LOTTO MAX MAXMILLIONS WIN
Toronto, ON – The LOTTO MAX odds have shone in favour of John Magro of Woodbridge! He won a MAXMILLIONS prize worth $1 million in the June 28, 2022, LOTTO MAX draw.
"I've been playing the lottery forever," said John with a laugh. "I play numbers comprised of significant family dates."
John, who works in the furniture industry, says he was up early the morning after the draw. "I checked my ticket on the OLG App before going to work and I saw Big Winner appear on the screen. I thought to myself – ‘Finally!’”
He told his wife the good news right away. "We waited to tell the rest of the family until they were home from vacation. Everyone is so excited!"
John plans to share his win with his family. "They're the most important people in my life. Sharing this will fill me with happiness," he smiled.
