“Marc and Lisa bought the ticket for us as a gift,” said Richard, while at the OLG Prize Centre in Toronto to claim their prize. “When we realized it was a winner, we decided to share it with them.”
“This win is so unreal! We’re still in shock,” shared Julie.
“It’s the best dollar we ever spent!” added Marc.
The group plans pay off some bills and take a trip to celebrate their win.
