Chatham couple wins $72,000

Chatham residents Johnathan Barylewicz and Maria Murray are all smiles after picking up their winnings from the Ontario Lottery Corporation recently.

Johnathan Barylewicz and Maria Murray of Chatham anted up and went “all in” to win the Poker Lotto All In jackpot worth $67,647.60 on Oct. 26. The married couple also won $5,000 on the instant portion of their Poker Lotto play, bringing their total winnings to $72,647.60.

“We don’t usually play the lottery together but we were at the store and I asked Maria if she wanted to play a Poker Lotto ticket since the jackpot was high,” Barylewicz, 42, said in a media release.

“We were shocked when we hit the jackpot – the retailer gave us a high five,” laughed Murray, a 37-year-old Human Resources employee.

The couple plans to renovate their current home so that they can eventually upgrade to a larger house.

“We want to make this win count,” concluded Maria.

The winning ticket was purchased at Ken’s Variety on Vanier Drive in Chatham.
