Another lucky St Patricks day winner, Valerie Deziel, was shocked to discover she was the second prize winner in the Canda Lotto 6/49.
She told the Ontario Lottery and Gaming Corporation:
I literally ran all the way home. We are now debt free. I feel so relieved.
Valerie collected a prize of $251,585. She now plans to complete her bachelors degree in ecological restoration, and will also use some funds for her daughters schooling.
Valerie bought her winning ticket at the Eagle Gas Bar and Variety, which is on Peter Street, Port Hope.
