Manjeet Babrah was happy enough when he thought he’d won $100,000.
But when the Mississauga man realized it was actually a $1 million jackpot that he’d won on a Lotto Max Maxmillions ticket, he was through the roof with joy.
“It’s such a shock,” said Babrah, adding he mostly plays the lottery when the jackpots are big.
Babrah, whose ticket won in the June 8 draw, said he checked his ticket using the OLG app.
“At first, I thought I won $100,000. I turned off my phone; I didn’t know how to react. I told my son right away,” Babrah said while picking up his winnings at the OLG Prize Centre in Toronto.
“I enjoy playing Ontario 49, Lotto 6/49 and Lotto Max.”
Babrah plans to invest and save a large portion of his win for his children.
“Hopefully, we will go on a family vacation next year,” he said.
The winning ticket was purchased at Hasty Market on Britannia Road in Mississauga.insauga's Editorial Standards and Policies
