Hunter Wins $15,000,000 Jackpot

Last weeks (September 13, 2013) Lotto Max winner was Delmer Hartwig of Ottawa Ontario.

Hartwig was Elk hunting in Killaloe Ontario when he stopped in at a terminal to check his lucky ticket. “Big Winner” came up on the screen. Hartwig said he was in complete shock but continued the hunting trip with his buddies.

When asked what he planned to do with the money, Hartwig stated “I want to keep this simple. I want to share some money with family and friends, give some to charity and maybe buy a new car. I may splurge on an extreme hunting trip in the Northwest Territories or the Yukon.”

Congratulations Hartwig!

Powell Family Lotto Max Winners

$50,000,000 Lotto Max Winner

The Powells have been playing Lotto Max as a family since its start in 2009, and their diligence has finally paid off.

After winning the $50 million jackpot on July 5, 2013, the family of 6 from Ontario cannot believe their good fortune.

Executive Director of Lottery Marketing OLG, John Mahoney, shared words of excitement and encouragement as he presented the entire family with the check for $50 million at the OLG Prize Centre on Tuesday.

The 66 year-old mother of the family, Lynda, was the one to purchase the winning ticket and discover their fortune. “I heard that the winning ticket was sold in Peterborough, but never thought that we were the winners. I checked the ticket on the self-scanner after grocery shopping and was shocked to see all the zeros,” she said.

Lynda shared the news with her husband John, 71, who could hardly believe what he was hearing. They later went on to share the news with their sons and daughters.

The family says that a trip to Wales and Disneyland are planned for the future. They also plan on sharing their new found fortune with fellow family members. Lynda said she also has her eye on a gold Cadillac Escalade. Son Michael laughed and responded, “I never thought Mom could think that big.”

Lynda and John’s children are: Daniel Powell, 45, Gaylene Powell, 43, Michael Powell, 41, and Sion Powell, 38.

Lynda purchased her winning ticket in Peterborough at the Walmart on Lansdowne Street West.

$1.8 billion in prizes have been awarded since the first Lotto Max tickets were sold in September of 2009. That number includes 28 jackpot wins and 169 Maxmillion winning tickets from across the province.

The next Lotto Max jackpot on Friday will be a approximately $12 million.
