Port Dover trio splits $1 mil­lion

Simcoe Reformer - Times-Reformer - - NEWS -

The Lotto Max draw Oct. 26 has proven to be highly prof­itable for res­i­dents of Nor­folk County and sur­round­ing area.

Three win­ners of a $1-mil­lion prize re­cently col­lected their cheque at the On­tario Lot­tery and Gam­ing Prize Cen­tre in Toronto.

They are Su­san Kennedy, Daniel Ivey and Richard Grace, all of Port Dover. They pur­chased their win­ning ticket at the Pi­o­neer gas bar on Main Street in Port Dover.

This is the se­cond $1-mil­lion prize awarded in the lo­cal area from the Oct. 26 draw. Ge­orge Childs, 62, of Sim­coe, col­lected his $1-mil­lion cheque last week.

Some of that good luck ap­par­ently rubbed off on Ed­ward Van Poucke of Till­son­burg.

Van Poucke also col­lected a big prize from the Oct. 26 Lotto Max draw. Van Poucke won $100,000 for match­ing six of seven En­core num­bers in the ex­act or­der.

Van Poucke, 60, pur­chased his ticket at the Till­son­burg Metro on Broad­way Street. He had the ticket ver­i­fied at a lo­cal re­tailer.

“The lot­tery ma­chine went off and I al­most started to cry,” he said. “It’s only now start­ing to sink in. It’s re­ally beau­ti­ful.”

Van Poucke is a trucker. He in­tends to buy a new ve­hi­cle and con­tinue on­ward with his ca­reer.

“It’s un­be­liev­able,” he said. “I’m still me though. I am still go­ing to work. But this win al­lows me to breathe.”
