Where there’s life, there’s hope. And when there’s hope, there’s me jumping up and down like a fool thinking I’ve won. I’ve been wondering how the media outlet iNews880 keeps writing about “where” the winning tickets were sold, so yesterday, I wrote to the author of the article, Thomas Dias and he was kind enough to reveal his secret. While the OLG site does not give this tidbit of geographical information, a sister site, the Western Canada Lottery Corporation does and I note that their page on the winning 6/49 ticket shows that the ticket – yes, a single ticket – was purchased on Ontario. That’s why I’m jumping up and down like a fool. Now, do I go on-line and check the numbers right now or do I enjoy the rest of the long weekend relishing the thought of how fifteen million bucks would change my life? [chuckles] Why not wait until Tuesday? If I’ve won, I can’t collect my winnings until Tuesday when the OLG offices open and if I’ve lost, why spoil the fun?
In any case, my thanks to Mr. Thomas Dias of iNews880 for cluing me in on where to find the location of the winning lottery tickets.
By the way, according to the WCLC site, the Lotto Max of this past Friday, $33 million, was won by one ticket sold in Edmonton. Heck, if you’re going to win, why not win big?
So, for the rest of your Sunday, how about catching up on a little reading?
I air a few thoughts about the up-coming vote in The Canadian Election: T minus 8 days.
