Shane Poisson of Windsor won the Poker Lotto All In Jackpot worth $73,735 on October 17th, 2020. He also won $5,000 on the instant portion of his Poker Lotto play, bringing his total winnings to $78,735.

Poisson, a 44-year-old married father, said he’s a regular lottery player but decided to play Poker Lotto on a whim. “I was speechless when I saw the winning hand appear on the screen,” he shared while at the OLG Prize Centre in Toronto to pick up his winnings. “It’s a night I’ll never forget.”

The automotive industry worker said he walked outside to tell his wife and he was shaking. “She told me to go back inside because it’s cold out. I told her I wasn’t shaking because I was cold – I was shaking because I just won $78,000! She erupted in cheers and screams of celebration!”

He plans to pay bills and save for his daughter’s education with his winnings. “I also run an optimists club for teens and plan to purchase shirts for the club members so they can continue their wonderful work in the community. It’s all about them.”

The winning ticket was purchased at Mac’s on Forest Glade Drive in Windsor.
