“I checked my ticket on my phone and thought I won something small at first,” Dennis said while at the OLG Prize Centre in Toronto.
“I’ve been playing the lottery for five years – this feels good!”
Dennis said he hopes to travel with his winnings.
The winning ticket was purchased at Hasty Market on Mapleton Avenue in Barrie.
