Denise Toman of Ingleside has that “6/49 feeling” after winning the Guaranteed $1 Million Prize in the May 26, 2021 LOTTO 6/49 draw.
Denise, a 75-year-old retiree said she is an occasional lottery player. “The morning after I checked my ticket using the OLG Lottery App and when it made the winning sound, I thought I won a Free Play. I couldn’t believe it when I saw what I won – I checked it again on the computer.”
Denise plans to purchase property and share her win with family. “It’s still hard to believe and hasn’t sunk in yet,” she said.
