Ottawa lotto winner David Wright.
It's a dream come true for an Ottawa man who has been playing the same lottery numbers for more than 10 years. David R. Wright is the latest from Ottawa to win a major jackpot. While reading the paper Monday morning he discovered he held a winning ticket in the Saturday, April 2th Lotto 6-49 draw. Without validating the ticket he and his wife rushed to Toronto to claim their 5.9 million dollar prize. On the train down they say they started to second guess themselves. But the numbers, for his children's birthdays, were correct. David plans to help out his children and his immediate family, travel and think about how to share the rest of this “blessing.”The winning ticket was purchased at Metro Convent Glen on Jeanne D’Arc Boulevard in Orleans.
