A Trenton man has won $5 million in the June 2nd Lotto 6/49 draw.
Marshall Dominey, a retired mechanic, says he has played Lotto 6/49 (and Lotto Max) for 40 years.
When he stopped at the store to check his tickets, he thought at first someone else had won.
“I saw ‘big winner’ on the ticket checker screen and I thought it was for the lady checking her tickets with the cashier,” he recalls. “I checked it again and I was in complete shock. I stared at my ticket forever, thinking ‘It can’t be me!'”
A father and grandfather, Dominey plans to share his winnings with his family and save some for future travel.
“I’m excited to enjoy some new adventures,” he says. “This amount of money is life changing — it’s surreal.”
Dominey purchased his winning ticket at West End Convenience on Dundas Street in Trenton.
