Michel Kassas of Leamington has won a MAXMILLIONS prize worth $1 million in the October 7th, 2022 Lotto Max. He also won $2 on his Encore selection, bringing his total winnings to $1,000,002.

Kassas says he is a new lottery player and has been playing for about one year. “My favourite games are Lotto Max and Lotto 6/49,” he shared while at the OLG Prize Centre in Toronto to pick up his cheque. “I play my own numbers that are comprised of significant family dates.”

Kassas, who works in social services, discovered his big win when he received an email from OLG saying he won. “I logged into my OLG account, and I couldn’t believe it. I told my mom that we won $1 million, and she was so happy, she cried,” he said. “My heart feels so full. This win fills me with hope.”

“This win is all about family. I feel so thankful and blessed,” he concluded.
