Vincenzo and Settimia Carroccia of Mississauga have just won theGuaranteed $1 Million Prize in the May 16, 2020, Lotto 6/49 draw.
"We've been playing the same numbers for 23 years," the married couple told OLG.
Vincenzo, 70, was gardening while Settimia, 71, went to check their tickets and replay their numbers. "The lottery terminal locked and I called Vincenzo to come meet me. I was shocked!"
The pair told OLG they are thankful to be able to help their kids with this win. "We're going to surprise our family and take some time to relax and settle into this win. We're going to think about the best way to share this with our grandchildren," they concluded.
The winning ticket was purchased at Daisy Mart on Miller's Grove in Mississauga.

Carbone, a 63-year-old demolition worker, went to the same store he’s been going to for the past 25 years to purchase and check his tickets, according to OLG.
“I gave my tickets to the clerk and went about my business when she called me back to tell me I won big!” he told OLG.
“She whispered that I won $50,000 in my ear - at first I didn’t believe her!”
The father and grandfather told OLG that the first thing he did was call his boys to tell them the good news.
“This win is all about my family - we can’t travel, so I will share with my kids and let them use it to enhance the quality of life for their kids,” he concluded.
