Lucky Ottawa Player Wins Prize Money worth $1,000 but with a Catch
The OLG lottery officials are here to share an exciting story of a lucky player who has won a grand prize. The officials have confirmed that the name of the player is Theodore (Ted) Lutes who is a resident of Ottawa.
The officials have revealed that the player has won the top prize money playing the “Daily Grand” game powered by the OLG lottery. As per the officials, the player reportedly matched all the numbers on his ticket with the drawn numbers to win the jackpot prize.
The OLG lottery has revealed that Lutes had participated in the lottery draw for June 28, 2021. However, the player did not show up to claim the prize money and it was thought that no winner would emerge to claim the prize.
The officials have confirmed that from the lucky draw, the player has won prize money worth $1,000. It may sound surprising why the OLG officials are mentioning the win for $1,000. The surprise is in the name of the game “Daily Grand”, which means that the player receives $1,000 every day for the rest of his/her life.
According to the OLG lottery officials, the player had two options that he could avail of playing the lottery game. Theodore could either keep receiving $1,000 per day for the rest of his life or receive a one-time lump sum. The player went for the latter and has received $7 million in his bank account.
The officials have revealed that in order to win the top prize, the player was required to match all five numbers as well as the Grand Number. This is exactly what the player has successfully matched in order to win his $7,000,000 prize money.
Ted informed the lottery officials that he is a regular player in the lottery games. He has played almost every game powered by the OLG lottery but he never managed to win prize money playing either of them.
This is when he chose the “Daily Grand” game in order to try his luck and see where it lands. The player stated that his dream came true when he saw he had won prize money worth $1,000 per day for the rest of his life.
The player stated he was even more surprised when he visited the lottery headquarters and was offered two options. He quickly went for the lump sum amount and now he has too many things he wants to take care of.
The player told the officials that he always wanted to visit Hawaii and go watch Niagara Falls. Now, he is going to fulfill his dreams and invest half the money to keep making profits from it.
