OLG Reports Two New Kingston Millionaires

Published on: 2018/10/30 - in News

The OLG has announced two new local winners in recent MAXMILLIONS and 6/49 lottery draws.

Congratulations go out to Wayne Barnett of Kingston, who won a $1 million MAXMILLIONS prize in the September 28, 2018 LOTTO MAX draw.

Wayne purchased his winning ticket at Circle K on Princess Street in Kingston.

Since launching in September 2009, Ontario LOTTO MAX players have won over $4.5 billion, including 60 jackpot wins and 511 MAXMILLIONS prizes, right across the province.

Congratulations also to Tye Morley of Kingston, who won $3,500,000 in the October 20, 2018 LOTTO 6/49 draw.

“I play LOTTO 6/49 twice a week, but this is my first big win,” Tye said at the OLG Prize Centre in Toronto, while picking up his winnings.

Morley is a 47-year old Canadian Red Cross worker who found out he’d won while checking his ticket with the OLG Lottery App. “It feels awesome, and comes with a lot of emotion,” he said.

The OLG says the father of three said that he isn’t in a rush to spend his winnings but does have a few things planned like helping his loved ones, a family trip and a new truck.

His winning ticket was purchased at Circle K on Milford Drive in Kingston.

Since its launch in June 1982, Ontario LOTTO 6/49 players have won over $12.3 billion in prizes, including 1,362 jackpot wins and 253 Guaranteed $1 Million Prize draws.
