St. Lucia man in Canada wins CAD$30 Million in Lotto

Colors

STEADY WUK
This Christmas will be brighter for St. Lucia-born, Canadian immigrant, Vincent (Tony) Charlemagne, who has finally been able to claim his $30-million lotto jackpot.

A regular LOTTO MAX and LOTTO 6/49 player, Charlemagne checked his ticket in August when he went to purchase a ticket for the next week’s draw.

“I scanned my ticket on the self-checker. When I saw all the numbers, I didn’t think it was real. I thought I won just a couple bucks,” explained Charlemagne. “I then asked the retailer to validate my ticket and that’s when I found out – I won the jackpot!”

Charlemagne, a self-employed contractor, was in such shock that he decided not to go to work that day but instead went home to take a shower to clear his head.

Then he shared the news with family. “I called my cousin, and said ‘I catch it, man!’ He didn’t believe me until I went over to show him the ticket.”

The two men then sat back, celebrated with a couple drinks and waited for the rest of the family to arrive so they could share the good news.

Charlemagne’s prize was paid after a prize claim review fully confirmed him as the winner making him Toronto’s newest multi-millionaire with a cheque of $30,350,652.50.

“It was a long process,” admitted Charlemagne. “However, all along I knew that I held the winning ticket so I wasn’t worried. The wait has made getting my cheque today that much sweeter.”

Although he has had plenty of time to think about his plans for his windfall, he has made no definite decisions yet.

“My wife and I will probably buy a new house and a new car. But what I’m really looking forward to is visiting my family and friends in St. Lucia.”

The winning ticket was purchased at M&D Variety on Main Street in Toronto. Lottery winners are reminded to always sign their tickets with their legal first names or initials to minimize any delay during the prize verification process.

Congrats to him.

Hope he has good financial knowledge already and if not, gets good financial advice. Hate to hear when these people win and in 5 years, they broke.

By law they have to list the winners. As soon as I validate my ticket with lotto Quebec and after taking the picture I would live the country for a few months and then come back incognito.

I kinda think winning those sums of money just brings out who ppl really are hence they end up in some jacked up situations. I was reading an article about how lotto winnings ruined certain ppl's lives.....then you read how they went off the deep end and wonder how anyone is surprised. I feel bad for those who are kind souls and they are taken advantage of.
