A retiree from Stoney Creek in east Hamilton has picked up a $1-million guaranteed prize from a June Lotto 6-49 draw.
Luciano Carbone, 65, says he’ll spend the cash on renovations, a new car and a family vacation, as well as on his children.
“It’s a great feeling — a pressure lifted off us,” Carbone said while picking up his prize in Toronto.
The $1-million winning ticket was purchased at the Circle K on Rutherford Road in Woodbridge.
The new millionaire said he and his wife couldn’t believe what they were seeing the morning they got the ticket scanned at a retailer.
“So we called our kids over to double-check,” Carbone said. “The kids were just as surprised as us when they saw it.”
