Toronto, ON – “It’s going to be an amazing Christmas,” beamed Nabi Kurdistan and Tawfik Sindy of Kitchener. The couple won $7,935,986.70 in the December 15, 2018 LOTTO 6/49 draw.
“It’s our first big win!” shared the married couple, owners of a bakery, while at the OLG Prize Centre in Toronto yesterday to pick up their cheque.
“We enjoy playing LOTTO MAX and LOTTO 6/49 together but Tawfik likes his INSTANT tickets too,” laughed Nabi, 53.
On the morning after the draw, Nabi and Tawfik went to the same store they bought their LOTTO 6/49 ticket to purchase an INSTANT ticket. “We scanned our LOTTO 6/49 ticket while we were there and when we saw the words ‘Big Winner,’ we were in shock,” recalled Tawfik, 66.
The parents of six plan on paying off some bills, helping their children upgrade their vehicles and enjoying an extra special Christmas. “Also, we haven’t been back home for a while so we are planning to take a trip to Kurdistan,” smiled Nabi.
“We haven’t slept since we found out we won – once we get our cheque in the bank, we’ll be much better,” concluded Tawfik.
The winning ticket was purchased at Hasty Market on Westwood Drive in Kitchener.
We haven’t slept since we found out we won.
