Toronto, ON – Andriy Kikhard of Mississauga has a million reasons to celebrate after winning the Guaranteed $1 Million Prize from the March 22, 2017 LOTTO 6/49 draw.
“I usually check my lottery tickets the day after the draw,” shared Andriy while at the OLG Prize Centre in Toronto where he picked up his winnings. “When I saw my numbers for the LOTTO 6/49 Guaranteed $1 Million Prize matched up, I knew I had to go to the store and use the ticket checker to be sure.”
Andriy headed to the store. “I scanned my ticket in the ticket checker and saw the words, ‘Big Winner - $1,000,000’ pop up on the screen. I went home to share the great news with my wife but she didn’t believe me. After phoning my kids I headed straight to the Prize Centre to pick up my prize!”
The father of two says he has been playing the lottery for more than a decade. “Even though I always hope to win, this is the first time it’s happened to me. Winning the lottery means more travel. I may also treat myself to a luxury SUV. I can also splurge on my kids, giving them each a money gift. This win is a real shocker – a wonderful surprise and I am very happy,” concluded Andriy.
The winning ticket was purchased at C.P.M. Lottery Kiosk on Burnhamthorpe Road in Mississauga.
Winning the lottery means more travel.
