The Ontario Lottery and Gaming Corporation (OLG) is recognizing a couple of recent lottery winners from Ottawa.
Timothy Hunt matched his last six of seven Encore numbers in exact order in the May 8, 2021, Lotto 6/49 draw to win $100,000. A month later, Ottawa's Jérémie Spadafora did the same thing.
"It makes me very happy," said Hunt, 61. "I told my wife and son and they couldn’t believe it."
He plans to pay some bills, purchase some household items, save some and hopefully take a vacation.
Meanwhile, Spadafora, 22, says he's not too sure what he'll do with his winnings just yet.
"I’m going to sit on it for a while. It’s unbelievable. After this year, I feel grateful. I never would have thought this would happen."
Hunt's winning ticket was purchased at Circle K on Raglan Street in Renfrew.
Spadafora bought his winning ticket at Massine’s Your Independent Grocer on Bank Street in Ottawa.
