A 51-year-old man from Stoney Creek is now a millionaire after winning the Feb. 13 Lotto 6/49 draw.
Hussein Ammar will split the top prize of $2,500,000 with another winning ticket in Western Canada.
“I always choose Quick Picks,” Hussein, a married father, shared while at the OLG Prize Centre in Toronto to pick up his winnings. “When I checked my ticket at the store, I thought, that’s too many zeros.”
Hussein said he told his family about his win, but they didn’t believe him.
He plans to use his winnings to pay off his mortgage and other bills.
“It’s a very good feeling,” Hussein smiled.
The winning ticket was purchased at the Real Canadian Superstore on South Service Rd. in Grimsby.
