lottery Ontario Burlington winner
Clifford Pottruff just won the top prize in a recently Lottario draw.

Clifford Pottruff of Burlington just won $380,507 but he doesn’t really have too much to say about it.

Pottruff recently claimed the prize after his numbers were drawn in the Sept. 16 draw of Lottario.

While lottery officials usually provide some background on the winner, this time the only comment from Pottruff is that he is “celebrating” the win.

The winning ticket was purchased at Busy Bee Variety on Plains Rd. in Burlington.

Launched in 1978, Lottario was Ontario’s first terminal lottery game and continues to this day.

Tickets are $1 and the draw takes place every Saturday. Tickets purchased before 10:30 p.m. on Fridays are eligible for the early bird draw.
