Omemee Father And Son Win Almost $55,000 in LOTTO 6/49

KAWARTHA LAKES- Mark and Bill Daniels, a father and son duo, play the lottery together twice a week. They say they have been playing for over 30 years and this is their first big win.

Mark says he discovered the big win while checking the ticket at the store.

“I couldn’t believe it –I almost had a heart attack. I asked the store clerk to take a look because I thought I was hallucinating,” he said. “My head was spinning!”

Mark went home to tell his dad next. “I was sleeping, and he woke me up to tell me,” explained Bill. “I said, ‘You woke me up to tell me that?!’ and we laughed together.”

Mark plans to pay some bills, travel and enjoy the summer with his winnings and Bill plans to get some new hearing aids and have his car repainted.

The winning ticket was purchased at Mister Convenience on King Street in Omemee.
