“I checked our ticket using the OLG App and I didn’t believe all the zeroes,” said Ernesto Diaz Herryman, while at the OLG Prize Centre in Toronto. “I called a meeting at work, and everyone was scared. They were wondering why I called them. When I shared the big news, they were so excited and told their families right away!”
“This is so unusual and so rare. I am so excited we beat the odds of winning!” Hiran Patel added.
The group said they plan to celebrate their win as a group.
