A Burlington man is “beyond excited” after his seven-figure lottery win.


David Rutherford, a sports and media agent, won the guaranteed $1 million (₦414 million) prize in the Aug. 11 Lotto 6/49 draw and also matched the last Encore number, winning an additional $2.



He said he typically buys a ticket for each draw and a quick pick.


“I usually check my tickets on the OLG App and this one I checked about 50 times because I couldn’t believe I had won so much,” he said.


“I bought a ticket, went to bed and woke up a millionaire.”


Rutherford plans to share his winnings with family as well as invest.
