Paul Gosselin of Windsor won $1 million in the May 11th, 2022 Lotto 6/49 draw.

Gosselin said he’s been playing the lottery for decades and he plays numbers comprised of family birthdates. “When I scanned my ticket using the OLG App, I thought I won $10,000 at first because I didn’t have my glasses on,” he shared while at the OLG Prize Centre in Toronto to pick up his cheque. “I got my glasses to take a closer look and was speechless when I saw it was $1 million!”

The 49-year-old said the whole experience was overwhelming. “It kind of knocked the wind out of me. It seemed so surreal. I kept telling myself it’s not real until I have the cheque in my hands.”

He plans to pay off his mortgage, complete some home renovations and adopt a dog. “This is the perfect opportunity to find a furry companion who needs a good home,” he concluded.

The winning ticket was purchased at 7-Eleven on Ottawa Street in Windsor.
