Better check those tickets because it’s been an extremely lucky weekend for several Ontario residents who won the lottery.
According to a statement from OLG, three people won massive prizes in the Saturday, September 11 draw.
“Ontario Lotto 6/49 players are celebrating a major milestone this morning,” reads the statement.

First was an Encore ticket that was sold in Sudbury with the winner walking away with $100,000.
Next was a Guaranteed prize of $1 million and the winning ticket was sold in Barrie.
As for the main jackpot, someone in Toronto just won a jaw-dropping amount of cash — enough to actually buy a house (or several) in the city. That winner will soon get to take home a huge cheque for $10,600,885.60.
Apparently, Saturday’s draw was extra special — all the jackpot prizes were awarded on this draw. As a result, there won’t be any carry-over prizes that will be going towards the September 14 draw.
As a result of the new Lotto 6/49, players have the chance to win two multimillion-dollar jackpots on Wednesdays and Saturdays.
The next draw is scheduled to take place on September 14. The Classic jackpot is currently at $5 million, while the Gold Ball gives players a chance to win $10 million.
