Zimbabwean man rich after winning $1 million lottery in Canada

Zimbabwean man rich after winning $1 million lottery in Canada. 47-year-old Onismo Murambiwa scooped the guaranteed $1 Million Prize in the February 19, 2020, Lotto 6/49 draw. Christmas came early for a Zimbabwean man who struck riches in Canada after he won $1 million in the lottery.

The father of three said that it felt surreal when he discovered that he had a winning ticket. Speaking to the In Brampton, the local publication for the city of Brampton, Murambiwa said,

“I thought, this is not happening! I scanned the ticket a dozen more times. It was a shock to the system. I even took a photo of the Ticket Checker! “As a realtor, I handle big cheques all the time. It feels incredible that this one is mine. I don’t know what to say – this feels like a dream.”

Murambiwa revealed that he was going to treat himself to a brand new car only. The rest of the money, however, is going to be put into savings for later investments.

In a surprising coincidence, another resident of Brampton also won big in the lottery. Alyssa Caetano received $197,679.90 after winning a Lotto Max second prize in the Jan. 7, 2020, draw. Caetano also won $44.30 with another selection on the same ticket, bringing her total winnings to $197,724.20.

Caetano told the OLG that she would use the winnings to purchase a car for her mom and a plane ticket for her best friend from Croatia to visit Canada. Speaking after the win, Caetano said.

“The rest of the money I will invest, or maybe put towards the purchase of a home. I never thought I would win – I’m kind of speechless.”
