The OLG will present one lucky Hamilton a $30 million cheque today.

The prize was won in the August 30, LOTTO MAX  draw. A news conference will be held at 11:30 in Toronto.

This is not the first time this year the winning ticket for $30-million lotto jackpot was sold in the Hamilton area.

Gayle Zolaturiuk, born and raised in the city, won a massive Lotto 6/49 take on a ticket she purchased at Big Bear Food Mart on Limeridge Road West.

"Each week I only play one Quick Pick and one ENCORE. I always said that you just need one ticket. But I was still in disbelief when I checked my ticket and discovered that I was the winner of the big jackpot," Zolaturiuk, who discovered she had won after checking her ticket online, said in March.

"My heart started racing. I just couldn't believe it. I kept looking at it again and again to make sure I was really seeing what I was seeing."
