Michael also won $5 on his ENCORE selection on the same ticket, bringing his total winnings to $1,195,565.90.

“I’m still in shock!” said the 42-year-old sales rep as he collected his big cheque at the OLG Prize Centre in Toronto.

Michael says he checked his ticket while out shopping.

“I saw a bunch of zeros and thought ‘I won $10,000.’ When I saw my real prize amount on the receipt, I was stunned!”

The married father of two plans to invest in his children’s future, pay off the mortgage and take the family on a Disney cruise.

“This win is life-changing for us,” Michael said.

The winning ticket was purchased at Market on Highway 401 West in Ingersoll.
