Mr. Miller won $1.000.000 in the Lotto 6/49 draw on November 30th, with a ticket he purchased at the Lyne’s Variety on Toke Street in Timmins. His two daughters were present when he checked a couple of tickets at a local mall and witnessed one of the luckiest moments in their father’s life.
“We all went to the retailer to find out more about my $1.000 win. The terminal froze and I saw ‘Big Winner’ on the screen, but I didn’t see a prize amount. OLG called and explained what was happening. The retailer then told me I won $1.000.000! My daughters and I just stared at each other, read the validation slip and saw the number but it was so unbelievable, we really didn’t say much. We left the mall in a big hurry,” recalled Mr. Miller.
Like many major winners before him, he has two things on the top of his wish list – a new home and a new car – a pickup truck, in his case, because “it’s great for driving in the winter and fun in the summer”, as he explained.
“I am also thinking about buying a new home. Big enough for my children, grandchildren and great-grandchildren, all of whom I plan to celebrate and share with,” said Mr. Miller.
