Bruno Sena Maia of Windsor matched all five main numbers to win a second prize of $25,000 a year for life with Daily Grand in the July 11, 2022 draw.  He opted for the lump sum prize of $500,000.

Sena Maia who works in the automotive industry, said he has been an occasional lottery player for the past four years. “I was at the store when I gave the ticket to the cashier to check. The terminal froze and the cashier said, ‘I think you’re rich!’ My heart was pumping,” he shared while at the OLG Prize Centre in Toronto to pick up his winnings.

When the 38-year-old got home his wife noticed something was up because of the look on his face. “She asked what was wrong and when I told her, she said, ‘You’re kidding’ I said, ‘Not kidding’ and showed her the ticket,” he said. “Then she gave me the biggest hug.”

“It’s been a crazy experience,” He said. “My mouth was dry and my eyes were wide – I was freaking out! It’s a huge blessing – especially as a new homeowner.”

He plans to invest this for retirement.

The winning ticket was purchased at McDonald’s Your Independent Grocer on Queen Street in St. Mary’s.
