Canada makes another millionaire out of local Ontario man after CAD $50 million Lotto Max jackpot win!
How would you spend CAD $50 million? For one Wasaga Beach, Ontario family, this is the question they have a lifetime to now ponder. Gregory Nikolopolous and his wife Tammy, along with their teenage son and daughter, are now CAD $50 million richer, after winning the February 6th Lotto Max jackpot.
As is his tradition for the past 15 years, Mr. Nikolopolous buys weekly tickets for both Lotto Max and Lotto 6/49the night before the draw. Checking them the next day after his morning coffee, it was on the fourth ticket that he started seeing the numbers match up, one by one. Screaming down to his son to come take a look, 18-year old Caiden thought he was having a heart attack! Calling his wife and daughter, who were on vacation at the time, he shared the amazing news with them, urging them to rush home.
Gregory owns a basement business, and his wife Tammy rescues abandoned dogs, but neither have plans to quit their jobs. “I am keeping my company and I’m still going to play the lottery”, the winner was quoted as saying. As their first purchase, the family will head to Florida for a relaxing holiday on the beach, while they contemplate what to do with their winnings. Though, the family already has two purchases in the pipeline: one is a 65-foot yacht and the other is box seats for father and son at next year’s Super Bowl.
The winning numbers that night were 1, 5, 7, 13, 14, 33 and 46, with a bonus number of 47. With 50(!) lotteries to choose from every day, there’s endless opportunities to become an overnight millionaire. Buy lotto tickets online today!
