TORONTO, ON – Congratulations to Shawnalee Coulter of Atwood for winning $788,769.90 from the June 10, 2017 LOTTARIO draw.
“I like playing LOTTARIO because it’s only in Ontario. When I saw the jackpot was pretty big I decided to buy a ticket,” explained Shawnalee while at the OLG Prize Centre in Toronto where she picked up her winnings. “I was using the ticket checker when I realized it was a winner. I scanned my ticket three times out of disbelief then brought it to the retailer to verify. I was shaking.”
Shawnalee was out running a quick errand. She had to call her husband to let him know what was taking so long. “We were in the middle of helping my sister build a deck and I was out to get screws. When I told him the reason I was held up, his reaction was ‘No way, are you serious?’”
There are already plans in the works for Shawnalee’s windfall. “We have a century home, so I will be upgrading the kitchen and putting in new hardwood floors to keep with the look and feel of the original house. Then I am treating myself to a Jeep,” she smiled.
The winning ticket was purchased at Ralph’s Service Centre on Main Street in Atwood.
I scanned my ticket three times out of disbelief then brought it to the retailer to verify. I was shaking.
