James Makarowycz of Oakville is celebrating after winning an Ontario 49 second prize worth $50,000 in the November 12, 2022, draw.

Makarowycz, a 65-year-old machinist, told OLG he’s been playing the lottery for many years and he likes playing Ontario 49 for the price point of $1 per play.

Makarowycz said he had a laid-back reaction to his win.

“This will help us do some things we couldn’t do before – we’re doing some travelling and cruises,” he said.

The winning ticket was purchased at Petro Canada on Iroquois Shore Rd. in Oakville.
