CA$17.6m Lotto 6/49 Winner Kept Scanning Ticket in Disbelief

Lottery winnings and fortunate people bagging their prizes have abounded across the Canadian provinces over the past few days. Lotto 6/49 is among the preferred lottery offerings able to change their lives, as it happened with a Mississauga player now CA$17.6-million richer. He recently bagged his lotto prize and took a photo with the coveted cheque with the fortune written on it.

Dwayne Reid is among the latest lottery millionaires on a national level that has the lottery to thank for his changed life. November 230 was a lucky day for him, as this is when Lotto 6/49 decided to make his lottery ticket the winning one via matching all numbers needed for the major cash prize. This is how the numbers that might have a special significance for him guaranteed him la dolce vita.

Mississauga Player Wins Big

Mr. Reid reported using the special OLG Lottery App making the entire process much easier. Players have the chance to scan their tickets and instantly find out whether they are winners or not. This prevents accidental errors from happening while comparing the numbers drawn with the numbers written on the lotto ticket.

Upon scanning a winning ticket, the mobile app produced a full-fledged celebratory notification making it clear that the user is a winner. It also displays the entire amount of cash they are eligible for. This is usually the moment when most people forget how to perceive numbers in an adequate manner and fail to take the information in. The amount of zeroes displayed on the screen is often perceived as a smaller sum.

Mr. Reid scanned his ticket several times, just to make sure he was not mistaken. In addition to the major jackpot, the player also managed to bag a CA$5 prize, as he was lucky in another selection of the Lotto 6/49 ticket. He has always been a lottery aficionado with winnings in the previous lotto draws as well.

Ontario Players Celebrate Cash Prizes

He revealed that 2015 was also generous to him, as he bagged a CA$6,000 prize from a Lotto MAX draw. This most recent winning came as a result of a ticket purchased at a Shopper’s Drug Mart in Mississauga that is now eligible for one percent of the overall cash prize. In other news, another Lotto 6/49 ticket purchased in Hamilton is now eligible for a cash prize of CA$2.5 million.

The overall CA$5-million jackpot prize was split between the Hamilton ticket and another one purchased somewhere in Quebec. The two lottery players thought alike and managed to become eligible for the Main prize coming with the most recent Lotto 6/49 draw. Another Ontario individual was also fortunate enough to bag big cash with the help of a single winning Lotto MAX ticket.

Lynval Baylis of Walkerton is the individual bagging half of a Maxmillions prize. He recently took a photo with the CA$500,000 cheque he was eligible for and his upcoming plans include the purchase of a house for himself and his family, as well as sharing it with them for various dreams come true. November 26 was when the winning Lotto MAX draw took place.
