A Midland man has won over 78-thousand dollars in the LOTTO 6/49 draw.
Stephen Chambers matched five numbers plus the bonus number in the January 7th draw.
“I’ve been playing the lottery for over a decade,” shared Stephen while at the OLG Prize Centre in Toronto where he picked up his winnings. “I usually pick up my tickets when I gas up.”
The 73 year old retiree asked the retailer to scan his ticket in the terminal. “I heard all the bells and whistles and saw that I was a ‘Big Winner.’ When I found out how much I won, I was shocked.”
Stephen is still deciding what to do with his windfall. “This money definitely brightens my day. I’m still waiting for it to sink in but it gives me a lot of freedom,” concluded Stephen.
