Multiple wins on one draw net Winnipeg winner over $194,000
Joseph of Winnipeg has many more reasons to be thankful.
Joseph purchased two Lotto 6/49 Combo Play tickets for the January 24 and 27, 2018 draws. He selected identical numbers for both tickets, save one.
On one ticket, he played: 3, 7, 13, 24, 26, 28, 35. On the other, he played: 3, 8, 13, 24, 26, 28, 35.
That series of choices would lead to multiple wins on both tickets!
First, on January 24th, Joseph's ticket matched two Lotto 6/49 winning numbers. Because of Combo Play, he won 5 Free Plays per ticket, for a total of 10 Free Plays.
Little did he know, that was just the beginning.
On January 27th, the Lotto 6/49 winning numbers were: 7, 8, 13, 24, 28, and 25, with 26 as the Bonus number. That meant BOTH Joseph's tickets matched 5 out of the 6 main numbers plus the Bonus! Each 5/6 + Bonus win brought in $95,268.20, for a total of $190,536.40.
But that wasn't all - Because he chose the 7-number Combo Play option on both tickets, he also won multiple subsidiary prizes in the 4/6 and 5/6 categories, totalling an additional $3,954.60.
In total, Joseph took home $194,491 in winnings from the January 27 Lotto 6/49 draw!
Joseph purchased both of his winning Lotto 6/49 Combo Play tickets at Boriwon Lottery, located inside the Real Canadian Superstore at 1035 Gateway Road in Winnipeg.
