Local resident wins $1 million

Chatham’s Henry Dumouchel shows off his good fortune – a $1-million win through Lotto 6/49.

A Chatham resident is $1 million richer after a recent lottery win.

Henry Dumouchel won a Lotto 6/49 Gold Ball Draw on Nov. 26.

A retired bus driver, Dumouchel said this was his first major win. 

“I play the lottery twice a week. I’ve been playing Lotto 6/49 since the beginning – it’s now officially my favourite game!” he said in a media release.

His initial thought on having a winning ticket was off by a few decimal points. 

“I thought I won $1,000 at first. When I gave my ticket to the cashier, she told me it was too many zeroes for it to be a $1,000 win. I pinched myself so many times – I didn’t believe it. I was at a loss for words,” he said.

The father and grandfather said he plans to purchase a new motorcycle and celebrate his win with a family dinner. 

“This is a dream come true,” he said. 

The winning ticket was purchased at Colonial Variety on King Street in Harrow.
