The Big Lotto 649 Winners of 2018
The Winners with the Big Hearts
One of the most amazing winner stories of 2018 comes from the Lotto 649 draw that took place on March 21, 2018. It was a Wednesday draw that changed the lives of two friends running a business together. These two friends have been in the lottery together and it is only after their win their community must have realized how big their hearts are.
First, the jackpot on March 21 of the current year was a whopping $20 million after several rollovers. The exact jackpot was $20,481,125.50, which was going to change the lives of two amazing friends. The winning numbers were 01-05-09-12-39-41 + 28 (bonus). The two friends winning the jackpot are Emanoil and David Brown. They are both from Orangeville and have a business of recycling metal items.
Emanoil, who is also called Mike, was the first one to check the ticket and discover about their win. According to Mike, discovering that they had won more than $20 million was so overwhelming for him that he started to shake. He further added that he started screaming spontaneously because of happiness. The first person he thought of after winning was his friend and his partner in the business. Of course, Mike was not going to break the news to his friend in a boring and bland way. So, he called him and told him he needed him to complete some task.
Mike says that when David arrived and received the news of their win, he reacted in the same way as Mike. He could not stop screaming. David and Mike are friends who have families and children. After overcoming their ecstatic moments, the two friends started to think what they were going to do with the money. Their minds were pretty clear about what they wanted to do with the money. There was no focus on taking vacations and visiting the beautiful destinations of the world. Instead, they instantly thought of their friends, relatives, and families who were stuck in mortgages.
They wanted to help those loved ones. In addition to that, they wanted to put some money into the business to expand it further. They also had plans to help the community that they were a part of for so many years. Some money, according to the friends, was going to go into the charities too. It was Petro Canada in Orangeville that sold this life to change the lottery ticket to the friends.
This win was not the only big thing that happened on the March 21st drawing. The second tier bonus on this day was a whopping $274,027. It could have gone to many players. But since it was a special day, only one person was able to take this prize home as well. They might not have won the jackpot, but their prize was big enough to bring some big changes in their life too.
It is amazing that while most of the lottery winners focus more on taking some time off work or going to their favorite place in the world to spend a few days relaxing, the two friends had complete focus on helping others with the money they had received.

It was Therese who had the coincidence of checking the ticket that day. She used a mobile application to scan the ticket and find out the lotto 649 results. When she used the app and it called her the “Big Winner” she could not believe her eyes. It was unbelievable for her and so she thought of checking the ticket on the website as well. The confirmation was shocking, elating, and unbelievable for her at the same time. According to Therese, she could not tell if things were happening for real or she was just dreaming at that time.
The amazing couple had to have someone to share the big news and there was no one close to them than their own children. So, they booked a get-together for their sons to give them the surprise. After the formal meeting, they shared the news of their relocation to Toronto. The children were happy upon hearing this from their parents but little did they know that their parents were going to hand over to them the winning ticket that was worth more than $9 million. According to the couple, their sons were in shock, and they could not utter a word after looking at the winning slip. Once they regained their senses, all they did was talk without stopping.
It was a happy story because the parents had been planning to be with their children for quite some time. The money they had won was going to help them do just that. They were now ready to make the move to the new city and into a new house which brought them closer to their own children and their children. The couple wants to celebrate their win with the family.

The ticket was sold at a Granville Avenue 7-Eleven store. Wayne was the lucky buyer of the ticket and he was also the one to discover that they had won big this time. Wayne explains the moment of discovering his winning ticket by saying that he just could not believe his eyes. He just could not trust his own eyesight anymore when he saw the number of zeros in the prize money that he had won. He stood there trying to make himself believe in what he was just witnessing.
Wayne felt as though his brain had stopped working. Finally, he made up a plan to surprise his wife. His wife was in England at that time and he was not going to hold back until her return so he decided to go to England too. He met his wife and started talking about how he had so many desires of buying so many things. At one point, he told his wife that he was going to buy those things, including the jeep he had always wished to buy. When Sandee did not pick up on hints, he broke the news to her.
