Oakville’s Karen Lutzko is in for one great summer after winning $50,000 with her Daily Keno 8 pick.

One thing is certain, Lutzko knows how to pick them. Her win in the Feb. 9, 2023 midday draw is far from her largest while playing the lottery.

A regular lottery player, the 61-year-old French tutor won $1 million in 2009 and also has some other smaller wins.

Lutzko was teaching a student online and, while he was writing his assignment, decided to scan her ticket.

“I said, ‘Oh mon Dieu!’ I was so happy – I felt euphoria, then thought about how great this summer is going to be!,” said the Oakville mother of four.

The tutor admits she feels blessed, especially because she has won in the past.

“This is an added blessing to my life. It feels exhilarating – c’est fantastique!” she smiled.

Lutzko plans to pay some bills and take a trip.

“I’d like to take a trip to Europe,” she said. “I will live comfortably with this win.”

Lutzko purchased her winning ticket at M&M Variety on Kerr Street in Oakville.
