News release from OLG

Heather Cherutti of Barrie can ‘find her possible’ after winning a Lotto 6/49 second prize worth $106,700 in the February 4, 2023 draw.

Heather, 51, says she plays the lottery once every couple of weeks. “This was only the third LOTTO 6/49 ticket I’ve ever purchased. Two days after I purchased it, I checked it using the OLG App and I was in pure shock and excitement! I couldn’t believe after only three times playing, my numbers came up. I woke up my boyfriend and showed him my phone and said, ‘I won the lottery!'”

She says she called her daughter and told her about the big win right away. “She was so excited for me. It’s something I never thought would happen. Third time’s a charm I guess!”

Heather is still considering what to do with her win. “I might buy a new car, some new furniture and pay some bills,” she concluded.

The winning ticket was purchased at Zel on Cundles Road in Barrie.
