“I am thrilled to pay off my student loan,” the 22-year-old transportation worker said
A Mississauga man is in contention for employee of the year after making his boss his first phone call with news he’d won $700,000 — and showing up for work, too.
Noah Fanor, a 22-year-old transportation worker, said he frequently plays Lotto Max, Lottario and Lotto 6/49, but it was an Instant Supreme 7 ticket that paid off huge.
“This game was the last ticket on the shelf. I picked it up while getting a car wash,” Fanor told the Ontario Lottery and Gaming Corp. “I saw all the zeroes and my heart dropped. I was in so much disbelief I wasn’t even thinking. I had to take a deep breath.
“This first person I called was my boss. I told him I won the lottery, and I will be late for work. Then I called my family. I did a happy dance with my brothers and then again at work with my boss!”
Fanor plans to pay bills, take a vacation with his family, and buy a home.
“I am thrilled to pay off my student loan,” he said.
