A married couple from Brampton just got a $1-million dollar nest egg for their retirement after winning big playing Lotto 6/49.

Peter and Sandra Crosby have been married for 44 years, and say they regularly play Lotto 6/49 and Lotto Max.

Sandra said she couldn’t believe the Brampton couple had won a huge prize in the September 10 Lotto 6/49 draw when she called the OLG’s win line to check the numbers.

“I thought there was a mistake, so I called the number again and I was overwhelmed and in disbelief,” Sandra said while picking up their winnings at the OLG Prize Centre in Toronto.

Peter said he first thought he was in trouble when his wife told him that they “had to have a talk.”

“She said we won a million dollars and I didn’t believe it. I had to check for myself. I don’t think it’s sunk in yet,” he said.

The Crosbys say they plan to enjoy their retirement with their winnings.

OLG is booking in-person prize claim appointments at the OLG Prize Centre in Toronto, with prize winners between $1,000 and $49,999.90 encouraged to submit their claims online or mail them.

Submitting claims online is fast, secure and enables OLG to process the claim in a timely manner. Customers with prizes over $50,000 are asked to call 1-800-387-0098 to discuss available prize claim options.

The winning ticket was purchased at Market on Fairview Road in Barrie.
