Lottery jackpots have the capacity to change one’s life and turn dreams into reality. When players’ favorite betting activity has been involved in it, the results are even better. The renowned POOLS draw game recently granted a player from Ontario some CA$334,108.50 for his correct picks related to the NFL.
The 27 years old player managed to make a correct guess on the 14 NFL winners, which resulted in the hefty payout. Lottery offerings feature diverse opportunities for winning big, as Crown corporations are willing to offer a vast array of games.
The wider the range, the bigger the number of players drawn to purchasing a ticket. The sports-themed lottery game is among the most popular lottery offerings aiming to satisfy players’ interest in sports wagering and gambling linked to the sports scene.
NFL Picks Result in Windfall
Every POOLS ticket costs some CA$5, but players often opt for several games, increasing the overall cost to CA$80. The Ottawa individual that succeeded in winning big was Charles Pelchat, following his passion for the NFL. All he had to do in order to become eligible for the cash windfall was to make a correct guess of the 14 NFL game-winners.
However, he was not alone in his good estimation and had to share the prize with another POOLS enthusiast. The overall prize anticipating its winner originally amounted to CA$668,217. Mr. Pelchat made the winning purchase at the Petro Canada on Eagleson Road but he was not prepared for the grand jackpot he was about to bag.
Upon bagging his cheque at the Ontario Lottery and Gaming Corporation prize claim center, he clarified that the amount would be used for paying off his vehicle, as well as covering the down payment for a new home.
Lottery offerings do not have to be the most popular ones, in order to be generous and make people happy. Marguerite Anctil could confirm this, as she recently bagged her CA$25,000 prize part of Loto-Quebec’s Extra draw.
Sunday-Funday Sets You for Life
August 17 was a special day for the player hailing from Quebec, as she became eligible for a grant payout with the help of a single lottery ticket purchase. Mrs. Anctil made her life-changing purchase in Châteauguay Regional Center ahead of the draw, which eventually spelled jackpot for her. Now that she is CA$25,000 richer, she wants to purchase new furniture for her house and give it a fresh new look.
A player from British Columbia recently bagged some CA$675,000 thanks to a Set for Life lotto offering. Katarina Burgess of North Vancouver had just finished work when she decided to scratch the Set for Life ticket she had purchased earlier. As it turned out, the top prize had her name written on it.
Right now paying off debt is among the top priorities for Mrs. Burgess, but she revealed that a family trip is also in the works. As it often happens her kids would also benefit from the amount, as their education would be fueled. The player said that instant lottery has been her passion for quite some time, as Set for Life offered a sustainable financial cushion.
