An Otterville truck driver got the Christmas gift of a lifetime.

William Brown won a $1-million prize after all seven of his encore Lotto 6/49 numbers were matched Dec. 25, 2019.

“I thought the win was for $1,000. I was in shock when I realized it was a major win,” Brown said in an Ontario Lottery and Gaming Corporation release.

Brown, 68, said he was checking the ticket in the store when he got the pleasant surprise.

The ticket was purchased at Dave’s Variety on James Street in Delhi. Brown said he plans to buy a motorhome and travel with his new found winnings.

“I’d like to see a few Daytona races,” he smiled.
