Jackpot winners sometimes wait a few weeks for the news to sink in before making plans for the future, but Mr. Holloway spent much more time getting used to the fact that he’s a millionaire. He matched the winning Lotto 6/49 numbers all the way back on August 29th last year and came forward to claim the prize a few days ago.

“I knew I had to take care of a few things in my life and wrap my head around such a big win,” explained the Mississauga resident who put the winning ticket in an envelope which he stored in a drawer almost a year ago.

He bought the ticket at a Petro-Canada on York Mills Road in North York and was stunned after seeing it won him an enormous fortune worth $7.000.000.

“I stared at the screen, saw the seven zeroes and thought, ‘Great, $7.000!’ I scanned the ticket again and that’s when I realized how many zeroes there were,” recalled the lucky man, who’s now planning a big celebration with his family, a trip to Italy and a purchase of a cottage.
