Toronto, ON – Congratulations to Michail (Mike) Apostolopoulos of Waterloo for going ‘ALL IN’ to win the POKER LOTTO ALL IN jackpot worth $114,014.30 on March 22, 2017. Michail also won $5,000 on the instant portion of his POKER LOTTO play bringing his total winnings to $119,014.30!
“At first I thought I won $11,000,” shared Mike while at the OLG Prize Centre in Toronto where he picked up his winnings. “Then I realized it was more than $119,000. I ran behind the counter and hugged the retailer. I actually lifted her up in the air and we both began to scream.”
The father of three called his wife next. “I said, ‘Guess what honey, I just won $119,000 with POKER LOTTO ALL IN!’ Her response was, ‘No way!’”
Next, OLG called the store to speak with Mike. “The first thing that went through my mind is that I don’t have to worry about my career. I can take a bit of time to figure it out.”
It was a sleepless night for Mike and his wife. “We stayed up talking about our plans. With this prize I am buying a new car. We also plan to visit family in Houston followed by a trip to Lego Land in San Diego. I am currently going through a career change and this win now gives me the freedom to figure out what my next endeavour will be. It’s going to be the summer of Mike! This prize couldn’t have come at a better time,” concluded Michail.
The winning ticket was purchased at Lincoln Variety on Weber Street in Waterloo.
