Multiple Mississauga Residents Enjoying Massive Jackpot Lotto Win


Published May 18, 2018 at 7:53 pm


A group of very (and we mean very!) lucky Mississauga residents are celebrating an absolutely monumental $40 million jackpot lotto win.

OLG recently congratulated the GTA group for winning the $40,497,949.90 jackpot from the October 28, 2017 Lotto 6/49 draw.

Six members of a group from Mississauga, Toronto and Hamilton attended the OLG Prize Centre to collect their winnings.  

OLG says that since the spouse of one member of this group was classified as an “insider,” additional review was required including a third-party review in partnership with OLG’s regulator, the Alcohol and Gaming Commission of Ontario (AGCO).

OLG also says a seventh person has also made a claim on this prize. As such, OLG has withheld a 1/7 share of the jackpot, pending further review.

To date, OLG has verified that six members are entitled to their share of the jackpot. The six members are:

George Scott of Mississauga

Andrzej Jasinski of Mississauga

Edward Deosaran of Toronto

James Jackson of Hamilton

Jeffrey Townsend of Mississauga

Jerzy Homa of Mississauga

The winning ticket was purchased at Maple Convenience on Bloor Street in Etobicoke.
