Orangeville resident, Lorne Wise won the LOTTO 6/49 second prize worth $66,997 in the Dec. 24, 2022 LOTTO 6/49 draw. He also won $1,099.10 on his other LOTTO 6/49 selections, bringing his total winnings to $68,096.90.

Lorne, an electrician, says he plays the numbers of family birthdays. “I’ve been playing these numbers for two years,” he shared while at the OLG Prize Centre in Toronto to pick up his winnings. “I checked my ticket at the store and this monstrous prize number came up – I was pretty shaken!”

Lorne says he told his children about the big win and they are happy for him. “It’s just awesome. I’ve been working all my life and I feel so grateful,” he smiled. “I feel so lucky.”

He plans to put this win toward retirement. “I will also share some with my children,” Lorne concluded.
