Micheal Melnychuk of Meaford has won a $50,000 prize in the March 30 LOTTO 6/49 Super Draw.
The LOTTO 6/49 Super Draw offered 50 Guaranteed Prize Draws of $50,000 in addition to the main jackpot and the Guaranteed $1 Million Prize Draw.
“Is this real?” laughed Melnychuk, a 70-year-old retiree, while at the OLG Prize Centre in Toronto to pick up his winnings. “I play LOTTO 6/49 twice a week and LOTTO MAX on Fridays.”
After checking his ticket at a retailer, Melnychuk’s excitement became a reality. “It’s a rare event to win, almost like winning the Stanley Cup,” he said.
The father of two and grandfather of four plans on doing home renovations, building a greenhouse, investing, and enjoying his winnings.
The winning ticket was purchased at Food Basics on 16th Street in Owen Sound.
