Ontario Healthcare Workers ‘Thrilled’ After $ 11.4 Million Lotto 6/49 Win – –


TORONTO – An Ontario healthcare worker who won $ 11.4 million says he unwittingly kept the winning ticket in his shirt pocket for a while without checking it.

Niagara Falls couple Lourdes Alvarez and Jaime Rosito, both of whom are healthcare workers, said they were “shocked and thrilled” when they realized they had won the huge prize.

“I left the ticket in my shirt pocket and forgot to check it for a while,” Rosito told OLG.

Rosito said that when he remembered the ticket and finally checked it out, he was told he had won $ 11,401,279.30 for the April 14 draw.

“I thought it was a mistake,” Rosito said. “So I checked again and then called my wife at work right away. “

Alvarez said she moved to an area to get better reception because she didn’t think she heard it correctly.

The couple said they would save their earnings for retirement and share the money with their family.

“We will spend our retirement traveling the world when it is safe. The first stop will be Spain, ”said Alvarez.
