Sherryl and Gerald O’Neill of Dundas, Ont., say they will be taking a “nice” vacation once it’s safe to travel amid the COVID-19 pandemic.
The couple can pretty much go anywhere after collecting their $1-million guaranteed cash prize from the April 24 Lotto 6-49 draw.
The winning ticket was purchased at Big Bear Food Mart on Castlewood Boulevard in Dundas.
“It didn’t feel real – it still doesn’t,” said Gerald who called win a “game-changer” that’s also expected to help with forthcoming investments in their future.
Meanwhile, Josephine Di Trapani, 52, of Stoney Creek, matched the last six of seven Encore numbers in the April 3 6-49 draw to win $100,000.
Di Trapani also didn’t believe she had won, having to connect with friends and family to confirm her good fortune.
“I took a screenshot and sent it to everyone I knew asking them what it meant. Some people were happy, and others thought it was a joke,” Di Trapani said.
