Talk about a double double!
A retired London trucker has hit the jackpot twice by winning the lottery twice in a month.
Clifford Reynolds, 70, won the $1-million Encore prize in the April 5 Lotto 6/49 draw.
Later that month he won another $10,000 Encore prize in the April 26 Lotto 6/49 draw.
Once he realized he won, Reynolds called his aunt.
“She is 93 and she raised me. She’s always the first person I share news with. She was really happy for me,” said Reynolds in a news release.
“Next, I called my brother and asked him, ‘When would you like to go to Toronto?’ I told him I won but it wasn’t until we got closer to the prize centre that I said, ‘I won twice.”
Reynolds purchased both winning tickets at Couples Convenience & Video 99 on Pond Mills Road.
“I will make sure that my aunt is well taken care of. She is an active senior. I’m thinking of setting up a college fund for my nephews to help get them started in life,” said Reynolds.
“Plus, I would like to help my brother, his wife and their two adult children. We are a close family.”
