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.
