Mississauga Man Celebrating Huge Lotto Win
A Mississauga man is starting the fall just a little bit richer.
OLG recently congratulated Nelson Barros for winning $74,269.10 with Pools, Football Pools Card #81 (List #1250).
“I enjoy playing Lotto 6/49 and Lotto Max as well as the sports games,” Barros told OLG while at the OLG Prize Centre.
Prior to this win, Barro's biggest win was $3,000 on Point Spread.
“I stayed up late to watch the Monday night game to find out if I won," he said. "It was a little scary going into the Monday nighter!”
The 41-year-old father of two is a Ford plant employee in Oakville. He plans on paying bills and taking his wife to the Bahamas.
“I feel incredible,” he told OLG.
