Hamilton has a new millionaire as Ontario Lottery Gaming (OLG) revealed that a resident has split a $5-million Lotto 6/49 draw from Dec. 4, 2019.
“Tien Nguyen of Hamilton has that 6/49 feeling after winning $2.5 million,” the agency said in a statement on Tuesday.
The ticket was purchased at Anna’s Lottery Shop on King Street, according to OLG. The jackpot is being shared with a co-winner in another province.
It’s the second day in a row OLG announced a million-dollar prize winner in the city.
On Monday, the lottery agency unveiled 14 co-workers at the Good Shepherd Centre in Hamilton who scored a $1-million win from the Maxmillions prize part of the Jan. 7 Lotto Max draw.
OLG says Lotto 6/49 players in Ontario have won over $12.9 billion in prizes since 1982.
