TORONTO, ON – Trevor and Karen Kot of Smithville won “Ontario’s jackpot” – $447,394.70 in the November 14, 2020 LOTTARIO draw.  

"This is our first big win," shared the married couple, while at the OLG Prize Centre in Toronto to pick up their winnings.  

The mother and father of two children checked their ticket using the OLG Lottery App. "We had it validated two weeks later, then put it in the safe right away!" they said.  

Karen said the couple told Trevor's mom about their big win right away. "She was so shocked, we thought she was going to cry!"  

The pair plan to build a new home with their winnings. "This will make life easier," they concluded.
