Hamilton teacher, soon-to-be grandfather wins big Lotto prize
Vito Battaglia, of Stoney Creek, has that 'LOTTO 6/49 feeling' after winning $96,397 in the November 16, 2019 draw.
Battaglia, OLG says in a press release, matched five numbers plus the bonus number to win the prize.
“I checked my numbers online when I realized I was a big winner,” said Battaglia, a 59-year old teacher, while at the OLG Prize Centre in Toronto to collect his winnings.
“I’ve been playing the lottery for about 30 years.”
The father of three and soon-to-be grandfather plans to go on a family vacation to Italy.
“This win feels good,” he said.
The winning ticket was purchased at Big Bonus Convenient Store on Highway 8 in Stoney Creek.
