"It's so surreal and hasn't sunk in yet."
An Ontario lottery winner won a big cash prize and revealed her secret when it comes to choosing what numbers to play.
According to OLG, Lisa Ing of Aurora won an impressive $100,000 during the July 27, 2021, LOTTO MAX draw after matching six of the seven ENCORE numbers.
Ing, who works in insurance, admitted while collecting her funds at the OLG Prize Centre that some of her lucky numbers have a hilariously simple origin story.
"I sometimes play numbers from fortune cookies or significant family numbers," she told OLG.
Nevertheless, she was stunned when she saw her winning ticket on the OLG App. "I had to check it a few times - it was a shock!"
As for what she plans to do with the winnings, Ing admitted she has no clue. "It's so surreal and hasn't sunk in yet," she concluded.
