LONDON, ONT. -- A man in London and a woman in Listowel, Ont. are each half-a-million dollars richer after winning Maxmillions prizes.
Antonio Manini, a 79-year-old London retiree, won in the Jan. 3 Lotto Max Maxmillions draw, matching seven numbers.
The father of two and grandfather of three told OLG officials in Toronto, “I called my daughter immediately – my voice was shaking and I was crying...I’m still in shock and disbelief.”
The winning ticket was purchased at the 7-Eleven on Western Road in London. Manini plans to travel and invest.
