An Ontario lottery winner took home $1 million and plans to use the money for his children’s education

An Ontario lottery winner has just placed himself in the race for father of the year after promising to give his fortune to his children.

According to OLG, Mir Alam Adam Ali, a resident of Aurora, won a life-changing $1 million after winning the Maxmillions prize in the May 31, 2022 Lotto Max drawing.

Mir, an occasional lottery player, admitted that he only tries his luck when the jackpot is too big to ignore, a strategy that seems to be paying off for the family man.

“This is my first big win,” he said as he picked up his loot in Toronto.

Of course, winning the lottery is only as good as the people you can share it with, which is why Mir wasted no time letting his wife know.

“I was shocked to discover this win. I didn’t believe it! I had to take a closer look,” he recalls. “I immediately called my wife to share the big news, and she thought I was kidding!”

“I feel so blessed. This money will go a long way for my family,” he added.

As for what he plans to do with his newfound millionaire status, the doting father told OLG that he plans to spend the money on raising his children and celebrate with a “nice dinner.”
