LOTTERY EMPLOYEE WINS $8.5 MILLION LOTTO 6/49 JACKPOT

Today Ontario Lottery and Gaming Corporation (OLGC) congratulates Stephen Cook of Toronto who became a multi-millionaire when he collected a LOTTO 6/49 jackpot prize worth more than $8.5 MILLION.  

Cook, 50, who has been with OLGC for 18 years, is an Operations Analyst working primarily with Blackberry systems..He was overwhelmed when he discovered the great news. “My life has changed forever.  I will no longer have any money concerns,” said Cook.  Upon checking and repurchasing his lottery tickets, which Cook has played for the past 14 years, he was in complete shock when the clerk showed him the validation slip. “There were so many numbers.  I didn’t realize how much the amount was at first. Then I took another look and was speechless,” Cook told Ontario Lottery Gaming Corporation staff in Toronto when he claimed his LOTTO 6/49 jackpot prize of $8,508,027 from the March 22 draw.

With the windfall, Cook plans to pay off his mortgage, invest funds and purchase a new vehicle.  “I’m sure I’ll think of other things to buy in the future.  I’m really happy I’ll be mortgage-free,” added Cook.  
 
As Cook works at the OLGC, his win was verified through OLGC’s “Insider Win Policy and Procedures”.

The winning LOTTO 6/49 ticket was purchased at Info Place in the Don Mills Shopping Centre on Lawrence Avenue East In North York.

Good luck,
Jake

          I thought one of the rules is that they can't play. Maybe I dreamed that one up, but I was so sure. Of course I don't know the rules in Canada, but isn't it the same for every state here? Usually an employee and family members cannot participate in any of the games.

            In Canada, lottery employees are allowed to play.

            Good luck,
            Jake

              In some states, employees can play and can win at scratch-offs.

              I've redone my website.  Go to www.dr-ew.com.  I kept a lot of the old stuff, and I've added some new stuff.  Look for more new stuff in the coming weeks.

                Congratulations to the worker who won the jackpot. I hope he doesn't have problems in future.
