Default Wintario Lottery Game

Most of you Ontario folks will remember the old Wintario draws back in the 1970's and 1980's?.They were hosted in a different town or city each week


https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Wintario



The very first Wintario draw was held at the Ontario Science Centre in Toronto Ontario May 15th 1975 and was co hosted by actor/comedian Don Harron

Not sure if I ever won anything on that lotto. Some dink up the road bought tickets at the same store and won a couple of grand - one number out from mine!

Yup. Books of Wynnetario tickets and also dig deep for the Provincial! I think it was 5 or 10 dollars.

He used his winnings to put down on a new Grand Prix. It was a beautiful car, bright red, but not long after he got it, much of the paint peeled off!
Now, he was mad!

That only happened because you rubbed up against it with the Eagle out of being jealous

many many years ago my parents played wintario and they won ten grand .
if you ever see my dad at a show ask him about it and he will proudly take the half of the winning ticket out of his wallet and show you .
not sure what year it was but i was still living at home and i moved out when i was 17 , so not yesterday for sure
