A group of four from Hamilton are celebrating a big lottery win

A group of five (four from Hamilton) are celebrating after winning an Ontario 49 second prize from OLG worth $50,000.

The winning ticket is from the March 25 draw.

The group also won $106 with Ontario 49 and Encore on different draws on the same ticket, bringing their total winnings to $50,106.

The group members are:

  • Michael Decan of Simcoe
  • Carmela Giglia of Hamilton
  • Craig Wilcox of Hamilton
  • Diana Campbell of Hamilton
  • Laurie Hughes of Hamilton

“We’ve been playing the lottery together for less than a year,” shared Michael, while at the OLG Prize Centre in Toronto to pick up the group’s win.

Michael, a 53-year-old Purolator driver, forgot the ticket was in his car for 26 weeks.

“When I finally checked it, the machine froze and the lady at the store told me I won.”

The winning ticket was purchased at Petro Canada on Queensway in Simcoe.
