Toronto man’s impulse buy nets CA$15m Lotto win

TORONTO, ON. – A retired construction worker finally hit the jackpot after playing Lotto 6/49 for seven years.

Alan Williams has played the same lottery numbers every week but when he stopped with his wife at a local drug store he made an impulse buy of a Quick Pick ticket. the numbers were chosen at random by a computer and they turned out to be the winners!

When Mr. Williams, 73, checked the ticket after the draw he couldn’t believe his eyes, the Quick Pick computer had matched all the numbers drawn. The winning ticket is worth more than CA$15million to the lucky winner.

The Williams’, who have been married to for 49 years, has no plans for the money but said he is going to take care of his sons, their wives and his three grandchildren first. He added that he may take a trip to Birmingham, England, where he and Margaret were born and raised.
