A retired Peterborough man has won the $683,592.40 jackpot from the March 2nd Lottario draw.

Leslie Vilneff, 63, says he has been playing the lottery for more than 30 years, playing Lotto Max, Lotto 6/49, and Lottario every week.

He realized he had won the jackpot when he checked his ticket online.

“I was shocked when I realized I had a winning ticket,” he says. “I couldn’t believe it.”

The married father of two plans on completing some home renovations, taking a trip to Hawaii, and topping up his savings.

“This win means financial security,” Vilneff says. “I can buy things I couldn’t buy before.”

Vilneff purchased his winning ticket at Circle K on Hunter Street in Peterborough.
