CORNWALL/SD&G – Three residents from Cornwall and SD&G took home a combined total of $100,000 on a special Christmastime lottery draw.

Cornwall friends Mark MacGillis and Denis Joyal shared a $50,000 prize.

Mark told OLG officials he might go for a ski trip with his winnings while Denis wants to soak up some sun on a beach somewhere.

The winning ticket was bought at Mitchell’s Variety Store on Pitt Street.

Another $50,000 was won by Mary Ann Thompson of South Mountain.

Merry Millions was a limited $20 quick-pick ticket that was available from late November 2023 until early January 2024. Only 500,000 tickets were printed with three top prizes of $1 million each.
