Huge Lotto Win for a Mississauga School Employee
There's been a lot of great lotto news for Mississauga residents this week, and it looks like another person is enjoying a windfall.
OLG recently congratulated to a group of 18 from the GTA for winning a $175,009.30 prize in the July 13, 2018 Lotto Max draw.
"Although the membership changes frequently we've played the lottery together in some capacity for 25 years," said Carlos Norberto.
"We started playing SUPER 7 together, and our biggest win before this was $150!"
OLG says group member Luiza Mascarenhas checked the numbers early Saturday morning, and sent a group message out immediately while Norberto confirmed their win on the OLG Lottery App.
The group members range in age from 38 to 73 and worked together at Lord Dufferin Public School in various capacities - child care workers, secretaries, and caretakers amongst others.
Most of the group members plan on going on a vacation with their share of the prize.
"You get used to small prizes so it's exciting to finally win big," Norberto said. .
The group members include:

Andrea Szollos of Toronto
Andria Henry of Toronto
Cindy Crain of Etobicoke
Jacqueline Campbell of Toronto
