Two Mississauga men enjoying big lotto wins
Two Mississauga men are enjoying big lotto wins.
OLG says that Carlos Quijada Ganuza won $50,000 with Instant Bingo Multiplier (Game #3071).
OLG says that Ganuza, a 61-year-old father and grandfather, discovered his win while at a retailer.
"I played the ticket as soon as I bought it and scanned it using the Ticket Checker at the same store," he told OLG.
"I had a good feeling about it!"
Ganuza hasn't made plans for his winnings just yet.
"I'm just planning on keeping the money in the bank until something comes up," he said.
The winning ticket was purchased at Buck or Two Plus on Bristol Road in Mississauga.
OLG also announced that Peter Campagna’s Daily Keno 8 Pick resulted in a $50,000 win in the September 8, 2020, Midday draw.
A 65-year-old father and grandfather, this isn't Campagna’s first big win.
OLG says he previously won $50,000 as well as some other smaller amounts, playing throughout the years.
"I was at work when I scanned my ticket using the OLG Lottery App," he told OLG.
"I had a feeling a won something but didn't want to check how much until I was able to use the app.”
Campagna called his girlfriend right away to tell her the good news.
"I was really happy and excited, and so was she," he told OLG.
OLG says Campagna, a realtor, plans to pay some bills and take a vacation when the time is right.
"Maybe I'll go to Niagara Falls when the casino reopens," he said.
"You have to play to find out how it feels to win and experience it on your own.”
The winning ticket was purchased at M&S Variety on Kipling Avenue in Etobicoke.
OLG is now accepting in-person prize claims by-appointment only for customers with prizes of $1,000 or more who wish to claim at the OLG Prize Centre.
