Anastasios Panagopoulos says he started shaking when he took his Lotto 6/49 ticket in for verification.
“I went to check my ticket using the Ticker Checker and saw $78,176,” said the 47-year-old house painter from Tiny Township. “I started shaking! I was so excited I brought the clerk to the Ticket Checker!”
Anastasios, a father, says he has played the lottery regularly since moving to Canada from Greece in 2004.
He plans to put the money toward a down payment on a house.
“I feel blessed!”
