Ajax Family Wins $7.3 Million Jackpot in Lotto 6/49
In the small town of Ajax, Ontario, one family is on cloud 9 after a miraculous $7.2 million win in the September 7 Lotto 6/49 draw.
Rany Naguleswaran and her husband, Kandiah, were at home together when they discovered the phenomenal win. Kandiah tells that he was reading the weeks lottery results in the paper and realised that the winning numbers matched all 6 of the numbers he had on his ticket!
‘My wife started to cry, we called our kids straight away to share the happiness with them’.
The $7,200,000.00 win is still a huge concept for the family to get used to. When Kandiah arrived at the OLG Toronto Prize Centre with two of his children he said that ‘It’s just unbelievable. Even after a couple of days, we’re still processing this and are a little bit in shock’.
The family are only new to the town of Alax and are unsure on how to spend their new fortune as they are very happy in their new home.
“My son just got a new ‘used’ car, but I would like to get each of my two daughters a car as we all share one now,” Kandiah explained. “We just came back from visiting family in Australia, but I’m sure we’ll be planning a trip somewhere else now. My wife really wants to visit India to see some temples.”
The winning Lotto 6/49 ticket was purchase at Petro Canada on Ninth Line and 16th Avenue in Unionville.
The winning numbers from the September 7th Lotto 6/49 draw that made the Naguleswarans $7.2 million richer were 3, 10, 18, 32, 40 and 44 with the bonus number 9.
