Ontario care worker wins $3 million lottery jackpot

  • Published date15 April 2021

Christopher Irvine, a 47-year-old long-term care worker from Penetanguishene, Ontario, got the surprise of his life when he landed a huge lottery win.

He at first thought that he had only won $3,000, with the wonderful truth dawning on him after he double-checked his ticket.

Irvine recalled the events following his discovery.

I couldn’t believe it, I thought there were too many zeroes, so I had to double-check at the store. The clerk couldn’t believe it either,” he said.

Irvine couldn’t wait to share the news and informed his girlfriend and co-workers soon after.

My girlfriend said, ‘Don’t lie!’ and freaked out when she realized it was real,” he said. “I’m a big joker so everyone at work thought it was a joke, too,” Irvine chuckled.

The lucky winner revealed that he intends to put the money to good use by helping his family, investing, and getting some much-needed new TV sets for the long-term care home he works at.

Irvine purchased his winning ticket at Daisy Mart on Main Street in Penetanguishene.
