Brampton Man Now Enjoying a Big Lotto Win
A very lucky Brampton man is officially enjoying a pretty substantial lotto win.
OLG recently congratulated Stephen Paul for going 'All In' to win the Poker Lotto All In jackpot worth $66,134.80 on February 1, 2019.
OLG says Paul also won $5,000 on the instant portion of his Poker Lotto play, bringing his total winnings to $71,134.80.
“I also enjoy playing Lotto 6/49, Lotto Max and the occasional Instant game,” Paul, a married father of two, told OLG.
The 59-year-old pressman checked his ticket at the store.
“The lady working started jumping up and down. I couldn’t believe it!”
Paul told OLG he plans to invest some money and take a vacation.
“I haven’t got over it. It’s unbelievable."
Poker Lotto is a lottery game that offers both instant in-store wins - of up to $5,000 - and nightly prize draws of up to $100,000 with each $2 ticket and uses playing card symbols rather than numbers.
The winning ticket was purchased at Gore Convenience on The Gore Road in Brampton.
