The lottery wins keep on coming for Mississauga residents
Published November 7, 2023 at 2:52 pm
Mississauga seems to be on a bit of a winning streak lately when it comes to the lottery.
OLG officials have delivered big cheques — from tens of thousands of dollars up to millions — to nearly two dozen or so Mississauga residents in the past couple of months.
The latest city resident to keep the streak alive is Lul Ogbaghebriel, who claimed a Lotto Max second prize of $186,281 in the Sept. 5 draw.
And like a growing number of recent winners from Canada’s seventh-largest city, the Mississauga woman chose to supply OLG with the required winner’s photo only and no accompanying words telling the world about her thoughts upon winning life-changing cash.
The winning ticket was purchased at Impulse Convenience & Home Services Inc., on Driftcurrent Drive in Mississauga.
OLG officials note that Lotto Max players in Ontario have won more than $7.9 billion since 2009, including 99 jackpot wins.
OLG publishes all wins of $1,000 or more on its website for 30 days. For major prizes, OLG requires a photo of the winner. The lottery corporation may also send a news release and photo of major prize winners to media in local communities.insauga's Editorial Standards and Policies advertising
