Toronto, ON – Congratulations to Alain Beaudoin of Guelph for winning $1 million with LOTTO MAX MAXMILLIONS in the September 16, 2016 draw.
“I scanned my ticket at the ticket checker about a week after the words ‘Big Winner’ appeared on the screen,” shared Alain while at the OLG Prize Centre in Toronto where he picked up his big cheque. “I thought I won $10,000, which is huge. I was distracted because I was purchasing a car that day.”
Alain later checked his numbers at OLG.ca. “I was expecting to see $10,000 but to my surprise, all the numbers lined up and I couldn’t believe it! I checked every number on the selection one at a time. I phoned the OLG Prize Centre as soon as it opened at 8 a.m. and I was walked through the process, step by step.”
Alain shared the good news with his wife. “She was so excited for me. Then I drove to the Prize Centre and here I am!”
Plans are already underway for Alain’s windfall. “I have a passion for collecting cars so there could be another vintage vehicle in my future. My wife likes to travel and we both love Canada so a trip out west to the Rockies could happen very soon. The truth is, I am a shy guy who doesn’t like a lot of attention. I know that is about to change. I am freaking out on the inside and trying to get used to being called a ‘Millionaire!’” concluded Alain.
The winning ticket was purchased at Petro Canada on Brock Road in Guelph.
