Congrats to Amin Liaghati Nasseri from Newmarket on being Ontario’s FIRST Daily Grand jackpot winner!
He won the top prize from the January 19, 2017 draw and he said, “I stopped at the store (Shoppers Drug Mart on Stonehaven Avenue) to pick up a few things and I figured I would check my Daily Grand ticket too. Dreaming about winning the lottery is one thing. Having your dream come true is unreal!”
Amin is a married father of two and he opted for a lump-sum payment of $7 million rather than the $1,000 per day for life option. He plans to move into a bigger house, buy a cottage and he plans to be a member of a golf club.
