Christopher Grenier of Penetanguishene has $1,418,967.40 to put toward his dreams after winning a LOTTO MAX second prize in the October 14, 2022 draw.
Christopher says he plays the lottery once a week. “I play my own numbers – all family birthdays,” he shared while at the OLG Prize Centre in Toronto to pick up his winnings.
The 41-year-old was at the store when he discovered his big win. “I checked my ticket at the ticket checker, and I thought it was a joke,” he said. “I called my work and told them I wasn’t coming in and then went home and told my wife.”
Christopher plans to purchase a house and take his family out for dinner to celebratee.
“It’s overwhelming . . . but in a good way!” he concluded.
