Mississauga Man a Millionaire Following Huge Lotto Win
Christmas has come early for a very, very lucky Mississauga man.
OLG recently congratulated Schamsullah Noori for winning the Guaranteed $1 Million Prize in the December 8, 2018 Lotto 6/49 draw.
"I enjoy playing Lotto 6/49, Lotto Max, and Pools" Noori, a 30-year old driver, told OLG. "This is my first big win!"
OLG says Noori was shocked.
"I scanned my ticket on the OLG Lottery App and I was shocked - actually I still don't believe it."
Noori, who is the father of a newborn son, plans on paying off bills, heading to Germany to see family, and spoiling his baby.
"This win is really great - it's going to change my life."
Since its launch in June 1982, Ontario Lotto 6/49 players have won over $12.4 billion in prizes, including 1,364 jackpot wins and 258 Guaranteed $1 Million Prize draws.
The winning ticket was purchased at Petro Canada on Dixie Road in Brampton.
Christmas has also come early for another lucky Mississauga man.
OLG says Tri Lam of Mississauga is celebrating after winning $81,173 in the December 8, 2018 Lotto 6/49 draw.
The winning ticket was purchased at Rabba Fine Foods on Eglinton Avenue in Mississauga.
