Three More Mississauga Residents Win Big in the Lottery Again


Published August 22, 2016 at 3:50 pm


It’s official — we are the luckiest city on earth.

Imagine our surprise when three — three! — OLG press releases hit our inboxes today, announcing that a few lucky Mississauga residents are a few pennies richer this month.

Heather Daly of Mississauga is the fortunate winner of $50,000. She won the cash in the Aug. 10 Ontario 49 draw.

“I’ve been very fortunate to win before, but never this big. It’s still very surreal,” she said in a recent OLG press release. Daly told OLG that she plans to settle some bills, repair her car and take her daughter on a trip to Niagara Falls.

If you want to match Daly’s success, know that Ontario 49 is $1 per play and the draws take place every Wednesday and Saturday. The winning ticket was purchased at Millway Gifts & Variety on Erin Mills Parkway.

Another lucky winner is Aurelian Pistea of Mississauga. He recently won $500,000 with Lotto Max Maxmillions in the Aug. 12 draw. His winning ticket was purchased at Gateway Newstands on Queen Street in Toronto.

Last but not least, Mississauga has a huge winner.

Krystyna Basalaj won $1 million with Encore in the Aug. 13 Lotto 6/49 draw. She matched all seven winning numbers on her Encore selection.

Encore appears to be a pretty lucky draw for people in our neck of the woods, as a Mississauga man won $100k quite recently.

Encore can be played in conjunction with most online lottery games for $1 and there is a draw every day.

Basalaj’s winning ticket was purchased at Get-N-Go on Highway 11 North in Orillia.

Congrats to all the winners!

Mississauga – start buying those lotto tickets! We have a very lucky city.
