For Oakville’s Minsoo Koh, dreams do come true.
The local maintenance technician is $1 million dollars richer after winning a Maxmillions prize in the Lotto Max draw on Nov. 25, 2022.
“I had a dream a few years ago and saw four of my numbers on my ticket,” recalled Koh, while picking up his winnings at the OLG Price Centre in Toronto.
Koh, a weekly Ontario Lotto Max lottery player, is officially the first millionaire lottery winner in Oakville in 2023.
“I can’t believe it,” said Koh, who initially believed he won just $1,000.
He realized he was a millionaire when he checked his ticket at the store.
“I was shocked,” he said. “I was expecting to put $1,000 in the bank and now I’m a millionaire.”
Koh plans on spending some of his new winnings on a wife and says a family trip could be on the horizon.
“I might take a trip to Florida with my family,” he said.
Koh purchased the winning ticket at the Galleria Supermarket on Hampshire Gate in Oakville.insauga's Editorial Standards and Policies advertising
