Congratulations to Melvin and Heather Roumeliotis of Guelph for winning the guaranteed $1 million prize in the Nov. 13, 2019 Lotto 6/49 draw.

"We were shocked and turned stone faced when we realize we won," shared Melvin, 52, while at the OLG Prize Centre in Toronto to pick up their cheque.

The married parents of two have some plans for their windfall. “We’ll invest a little, share a little and spend a little,” smiled Heather, a 50-year-old nurse.

"Aside from this, I've already won the lottery marrying Heather," Melvin concluded.

Since its launch in June 1982, Ontario Lotto 6/49 players have won over $12.8 billion in prizes, including 1,385 jackpot wins and 305 guaranteed $1 million prize draws.

The winning ticket was purchased at 7-Eleven on Speedvale Avenue in Guelph.
