$2 Million Prize Won by an Indian Lotto Player on Ontario 49 Draw

An occasional lotto player from India, residing in Mississauga, decided to buy his first-ever ticket for the Ontario 49 draw, not even dreaming that he would win the new jackpot prize of $2 million!

He went to the Hasty Market on Britannia Road in his town to purchase the lotto ticket, after hearing an ad for the draw on the radio.

His ticket was the winning ticket for the newly-refreshed game that offered a brand new $2 million jackpot with each draw.

The draw took place on the 11th of June, 2014, but Tahir Ali, the Ontario 49 Indian lottery winner of $2 million found out about his win a day after the draw.

An Unbelievable Experience

Being only an occasional lotto player, Ali heard on the radio that the Ontario 49 draw had a $2 million jackpot prize for grabs, so he bought his ticket for the draw that was to take place on the 11th of June.

While at the OLG Prize Centre in Toronto, Ali explained: “I went to the store to check the ticket and saw ‘Big Winner’ on the self-checker, but I thought it was an advertisement, so I went home.”

Ali, who has been living and working in Canada for the past seven years, further detailed “The next day I checked the numbers online at work and realized that I won the jackpot!”

He then went home to tell his wife the awesome news “There were tears of joy in our eyes. We are so happy,” he shared.

Commenting on his plans, Ali shared that he plans on spending some of the money he won to help his children.

“I want to make sure they continue to work hard, but I am happy to tell them that their education costs will be taken care of,” he said.
