Unsuspicious Lotto Max Winner Waited 2 Months To Claim the Prize


Dwayne Williams, a Lotto Max winner, was so surprised by the information that he had won 55 million Canadian dollars, that he had entered into a condition of being completely stupefied. Actually, it took him two months to claim the winnings from the Ontario Lottery & Gaming Corporation. In the winner’s family, it was a regular tradition to purchase a Lotto Max ticket every Friday and check for winning numbers every Saturday. But once, on a Saturday morning April 6, Dwayne forgot to compare the winning numbers with those indicated on his ticket.

Later, a Canadian player mentioned that he had heard that the week’s winning ticket had been sold to a resident of the Ossawa area. He even jokingly said to his wife that they had finally become the Lottery winners. At that time, Williams hardly realized that he had hit a real jackpot at the latest Lotto Max Lottery!

Too Good To Be True

Only one week later on Saturday, the lucky winner remembered about a mental note to check his ticket. That mental note was made exactly that morning after he had joked with his wife about the jackpot. Williams started checking the winning numbers using the OLG’s Lottery application. For quick verification, the tickets should be scanned by the app for eliminating any errors while checking numbers.

You cannot even imagine his astonishment when the app revealed that he was actually the owner of the winning ticket for that week. First, Williams assumed that there had to have been some errors with the OLG’s application. He even supposed that a cyber-crook had hacked the system, which caused false readings of the scanned tickets.

Two Months Before Claiming

But what surprises the most is that Williams family decided to wait about two months before claiming the prize. Later, the winner said that it was important to him to understand the most responsible way to use the winnings, even before the money was claimed from the Ontario Lottery & Gaming Corporation.
