TORONTO – Morrisburg resident Barry McMillan is all smiles after winning a $77,777 top prize with the “Instant Tripling Red 7’s” game from the Ontario Lottery and Gaming Corporation (OLG).

“Tripling Red 7’s has been really good to me,” said McMillan in a release issued by OLG June 9th. “Just a few weeks ago I won $777.”

McMillan explained he did not think he actually won the top prize.

“I needed to be sure, so I took the ticket to be validated. That’s when I saw ‘Big Winner’ appear on the terminal and the amount. It still feels so unreal,” he said.

The winning ticket was purchased at Mustard’s Variety in the Iroquois Plaza.
