Toronto, ON – Olga Righetti of Woodbridge has a million reasons to celebrate after winning the Guaranteed $1 Million Prize from the June 10, 2017 LOTTO 6/49 draw.
“LOTTO 6/49 is my favourite game,” shared Olga while at the OLG Prize Centre in Toronto to pick up her winnings. “I have been playing specific numbers for eight years now – special birthdays including mine and my children’s. Finally it’s paid off!”
The 73 year old grandmother of five was finishing up her groceries when she checked her tickets on the way out. “I saw that I won, but didn’t know how much until I put my glasses on. When I checked again and counted the zeros I thought, ‘Oh my gosh, that’s a million dollars!’”
Olga shared the news with her daughter and son next. “They were so excited. There was a lot of screaming and tears of joy,” she laughed.
Olga has some ideas in mind for her windfall. “I’ll be taking my family on a vacation – maybe the Caribbean. As long as we’re all together I don’t care. Just knowing I am able to help my children financially is the greatest gift. As for myself, maybe I’ll splurge on some fancy dinners and a new diamond ring!”
“Winning the lottery has been an emotional rollercoaster. It feels like a dream that I haven’t woken up from. I’m feeling so many wonderful emotions,” concluded Olga.
The winning ticket was purchased at the CNIB Kiosk in Walmart on Highway 27 in Woodbridge.
