Life is a little more “grand” for Martin Beyer of London. He matched all five main numbers to win a second prize of $25,000 a year for life with DAILY GRAND in the October 30, 2023 draw. Martin opted for the lump sum payment of $500,000.
Martin said he’s been a regular lottery player for about three years and purchased his ticket online out of convenience. “I choose the same numbers every time. I almost didn’t purchase a ticket for this draw but changed my mind last minute because it was a super draw,” he shared while at the OLG Prize Centre in Toronto to pick up his winnings.
The 62-year-old retiree said he saw an email from OLG come through that looked different from others he had received. “I logged into my account and saw I had won $25,000 a year for life. I thought, ‘Wow is this for real?’ I was double and triple checking to make sure,” he said. “It’s the kind of surprise that has you questioning reality. I had to pinch myself to make sure I wasn’t dreaming.”
Martin has always chosen a carefree approach to life and this windfall will fund his spontaneous lifestyle. “I will enjoy and treat myself to some upgraded experiences along the way,” he smiled. “I’m also considering getting a dog to enjoy my increased quality of life with!”
