Toronto, ON – Jennifer Kavanagh of Ottawa has a million reasons to celebrate after winning the Guaranteed $1 Million Prize from the May 13, 2017 LOTTO 6/49 draw.
“I actually received this ticket as a gift from my husband and sons for Mother’s Day,” Jennifer shared while at the OLG Prize Centre in Toronto to pick up her winnings. “Who could have known such a sweet gift could turn into so much more!”
Jennifer left the ticket in her purse for a while, knowing she hadn’t won the jackpot, but might have a Free Play. “It’s a good thing I kept it! I didn’t even think to check the Guaranteed $1 Million Prize.”
While Jennifer was out for groceries she checked her ticket. “I knew I won something, but while in a flurry of activity I took the ticket and left. I was packing the groceries into the car when the retailer came out to tell me OLG was on the phone,” she laughed.
Jennifer has some plans for the near future, “we’ll put an expansion on our home and take a family trip to Cape Breton,” she beamed.
“Winning the lottery provides peace for me. It fills my heart to know my family will be taken care of,” she concluded.
The winning ticket was purchased at the Real Canadian Superstore on Richmond Road in Ottawa.
It fills my heart to know my family will be taken care of.
