Two more lottery winners in Lambton County


It seems Lambton is a lucky place to live.

Two more people from Central Lambton have won big money in the lottery.

Adam Martin of Brigden seems to have been repaid for a good dead with a $100,000 win. The 35 year-old father of two, who is engaged, went back to the store after noticing he had not paid enough for his items. Out the way out, he picked up a Hot Card.

Martin checked the ticket and found he’d won $100,000. “I didn’t know if I was going to have a heart attack or cry,” he told the Ontario Lottery and Gaming Commission.

“I help people when I can and try to set a positive example for the kids. The fact that I got this ticket when going back to the store to pay for an item that I was undercharged for is a strong indicator that good things happen to good people,” he explained.

Meantime, Watford resident Cathy Case has been playing her regular numbers for a while. They include family birthdays, anniversaries and her kid’s hockey jersey numbers.

She discovered her win at the gas station and found she won $195,706.60.

“I probably looked strange standing there at the Ticket Checker for so long,” she told OLG officials. Case doesn’t have plans for the money yet but is looking forward to taking her family, including former Warwick Mayor Todd Case, to a Toronto Blue Jays gammon the future.

“This win is a turning point for all good things for the remainder of the year,” she says.
