A lucky Canadian man has hit it big for the second time running after winning two CAD 1 million jackpot prizes in the space of 13 months.
Antoine Beaini from the town of Milton in Ontario, Canada, can be seen wearing a chic black cap and a smile as he holds up a CAD 1 million (GBP 638,310) check after nabbing the Maxmillion LOTTO MAXprize for the second time.
This was after the Milton resident discovered that he had purchased the winning ticket after checking the lottery draw results on an official Ontario Lottery and Gaming Corporation (OLG) app, according to reports from Tuesday, 25th October.
He told local media: “I couldn’t believe it. I thought ‘Again?’
“It was more shocking than the first win.
“I told my wife, and she was very happy!”
He then made his way to the OLG’s headquarters in Toronto to claim his winnings for the second time in the space of just over a year.
This was 13 months after the elated winner, who reportedly stated that he loves playing LOTTO MAX, claimed his first prize in August 2021.
Antoine told lottery officials: “I was also at the prize centre in August 2021 to pick up a $1 million prize!”
The Milton resident reportedly plans to use his winnings to ensure his family’s well-being while looking out for his younger relatives.
He added: “I want to make sure the next generation of my family is set up comfortably.”
