Hamilton man's craving for Pepsi leads to huge lotto win
A Hamilton man's Pepsi craving results in huge and unexpected windfall.
Hamilton's Michael Chamberlin was struck by the Lightning Lotto jackpot on February 10, 2021. The top prize, which started at $125,000, had grown to $312,286.70 before it was won.
Thirty-four-year-old Chamberlin said says he plays the lottery 'once in a blue moon.'
“This is my first big win,” he said while at the OLG Prize Centre in Toronto to pick up his cheque.
“I was driving home and craved a Pepsi, so I stopped to get one and thought ‘Why not throw $10 on a lottery play?’ I didn’t believe it when I won!”
The finance manager told his fiance about his big win right away.
“She’s was excited!" he said.
Michael plans to purchase his dream bike and invest in the future with his windfall.
The winning ticket was purchased at Big Bee Convenience on Lawrence Road in Hamilton.
