An man from Ajax is “shocked” to have won $1,000,000 in a Lotto 6/49 draw, plus the $10 he won in another play.

Andy Badrinarain, 38 of Ajax, has been playing the same numbers for the past three years. He picked up his latest ticket from the Mi Fuel on Sheppard Avenue in Scarborough.

“I checked my ticket on the OLG App and had to scan it multiple times after that,” Badrinarain told the OLG, “I had to call OLG to make sure it was actually real. I was shocked when I realized it was!”

He wasn’t the only one. When Badrinarain told his brother, he didn’t believe it either until he checked the ticket himself.

Badrinarain is going to pay off his bills, invest and go on vacation with his winnings. “It is surreal – it brings joy and a mix of other emotions,” he said.

Any other winners between $1,000 and $49,999 can submit their winnings online. Anyone who wins $50,000 or more should call  1-800-387-0098 to book pick up.
