Chatham couple goes ‘all in’, wins $72K

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 October 26, 2019.

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,” stated Johnathan, a 42-year-old CNC operator, while at the OLG Prize Centre in Toronto to pick up their cheque.

“We were shocked when we hit the jackpot – the retailer gave us a high five,” laughed Maria, 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,” added Maria.

POKER LOTTO players can opt for ALL IN for an additional $1 to take a chance on instantly winning a jackpot that starts at $10,000 and grows until it is won.

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