Julie, a 54-year-old married father, said he discovered his win while stopping for gas.

“The three tickets I checked first were all winners too – two Free Plays and a $20 win. When I scanned this one, I saw Big Winner and for some reason I thought I won $50,000,” he shared while at the OLG Prize Centre in Toronto to pick up his winnings. “Then OLG called the store to speak with me and asked if I realized I had won $1 million. I was so happy!”

Julie said he keeps reflecting on how this win will change his life and help his children. 
“Now I’m a millionaire – it’s so amazing,” he smiled. 

The first thing he plans to do with his windfall is pay off his mortgage. “I will also share with my children and use the rest wisely,” he concluded.

The winning ticket was purchased at Circle K on Dawson Road in Orangeville.

In accordance with government-issued lockdown measures to help prevent the spread of COVID-19, OLG is currently limiting the number of in-person prize claim appointments at the OLG Prize Centre in Toronto to only those that require a face-to-face interview.
