Lindsay Couple Wins More than $1 Million In The Lottery

KAWARTHA LAKES-A Lindsay, Ont., man had a birthday to remember after he and his wife claimed more than $1 million on a lottery ticket in October.

John Patterson and his wife Tonia won the guaranteed $1-million prize in the Oct. 10, 2020, Lotto 6/40 draw. They won another $10 on one of their Lotto 6/49 tickets according to the OLG.

“We didn’t check our ticket for two months because we usually check all of our tickets at the same time,” said John. “I thought we won $1,000 or $10,000. When I sent a photo of the win to Tonia, that’s when I noticed it was $1 million.”

The couple says they plan to use their winnings to build a house and pay off bills.

Their winning tickets were purchased at Circle K on King Street in Lindsay.

“We want to live comfortably and be in love,” said Tonia.
