Mississauga truck driver enjoying big lotto win
A Mississauga man is starting 2020 off with a big lotto win.
OLG says Manuel Portillo Rivas has that "6/49 feeling" after winning a Lotto 6/49 second prize worth $77,974.50 in the December 28, 2019 draw.
Rivas matched five numbers plus the bonus number to win the prize.
“This is a first-time win for me,” Rivas told OLG.
The 57-year old truck driver checked his ticket using the OLG Lottery App.
“I almost fainted,” he told OLG “I had to ask my wife to double-check that I won!”
Rivas told OLG that he plans to pay off some bills and plan a trip with his wife to celebrate his big win.
“Winning is such a happy feeling!"
The winning ticket was purchased at Petro Canada on Winston Churchill Boulevard in Mississauga.
