A group of 13 people–which includes residents from Mississauga, Brampton and Whitby–are celebrating a pretty big lotto win.
OLG recently announced that the group had the winning ticket for a Maxmillions prize worth $1 million from the June 1, 2021 Lotto Max draw. They also won $2 on their Encore selection, bringing their total winnings to $1,000,002.
The group members include:
- James Stewart of Beeton
- A-Bau Thong of Brampton
- Andrew Ennos of Whitby
- Antonio Galardo of Toronto
- Baney Persaud of Brampton
- David Chanthaphone of Toronto
- George Pagiatakis of Toronto
- John Morrison of Newmarket
- Paul Torresan of Caledon East
- Stephen Browne of Barrie
- Susan Slade of Ingersoll
- Tony Watton of Innisfil
- Werner Kehlbreier of Mississauga
The group of coworkers say they’ve been playing the lottery together for 10 to 15 years.
“Everyone was shocked! They were so thrilled when I told them,” Stewart, the group leader and a married father of two, told OLG.
“Everyone is excited to see the money. A few guys want to buy cars. One group member wants to take a trip to Italy with his family. I want to pay some bills and complete some renovations around the house.”
The winning ticket was purchased at Bee-Mart on Main Street in Beeton.insauga's Editorial Standards and Policies
