Two people from eastern Ontario, Canada have become the latest lottery millionaires!
June 15 Draw
OLG announced Frederick Hubbard, of Barry's Bay, had won the Lotto Max MAXMILLIONS prize of $1 million from the June 15 draw.
The retiree says he bought $10 more worth of tickets than he usually does, "This win came from the first line on the extra money I spent."
Hubbard plans to share his windfall with his children, make some investments and save some money aside for travel in the future.
He said, "I can't describe this experience. It's nice to know my family is taken care of."
June 22 Draw
Diana Hall and Kerry Benford (pictured above) from Kingston had the winning ticket for the Lotto Max MAXMILLIONS prize worth $1 million from the June 22 draw.
Benford was in disbelief after he scanned his tickets and saw the Big Winner screen appear, "I took a photo of the screen and then rushed home to show Diana. My jaw dropped a little more as I matched every number. I didn't believe it could be real."
Hall and Benford plan to travel in the future and will start that by visiting family and friends in Canada, "We'll enjoy our early retirement traveling when it's safe again."
