Trio of Burlington residents celebrating Lotto wins
Three Burlington residents are celebrating Lotto wins this week.
Tracy Rombout has won $100,000 with INSTANT BOOM MULTIPLIER.
"It was totally awesome. I didn't sleep that night because I was so excited," she said.
The mother of three has said she intends to use the money for a down payment on a house, as well as a vacation sometime next year.
"You never think you'll win but when you do, you need to recheck the ticket eight times," she laughed. "This is huge, absolutely life-changing for me," she said.
Additionally, Stewart and Lisa Halley said “yes” to ENCORE and are now $100,000 richer because of it. The married couple matched the last six of seven ENCORE numbers in the exact order in the June 19, 2020 LOTTO MAX draw to win.
"We checked using Stewart's phone and then we did a happy dance in the living room," Lisa said, describing the moment she and her husband learned they had won.
"Stewart was stunned, he never thought we'd win a big amount," she continued.
The parents of two plan to use the money for renovations on their home, as well as some travelling when safe to do so.
"That day I felt so relaxed. The stress from the pandemic melted away a bit because this win allowed us to be in the moment. It was a weird feeling," Lisa said.
The OLG Prize Centre in Toronto has resumed in-person prize claims for winning-ticket holders of $50,000 or more by appointment only.
Currently, OLG is reaching out to major prize winners ($50,000+) who have been unable to claim their prizes due to COVID-19 to schedule appointments for in-person prize claims. In the coming weeks, OLG will open appointments to anyone wishing to claim their prize in-person at the Prize Centre.
Rombout purchased her winning ticket at a Circle K on Guelph Line, while the Halleys purchased their winning ticket at a Shoppers Drug Mart on Lakeshore Road
