Soldiers’ 50/50 Winner Takes Home Third Highest Prize to Date of $27,220

ORILLIA, ON — For Orillia’s own Bruce Clark, the sentiment “have a prosperous New Year” took on a whole new meaning when he became the winner of the Soldiers’ 50/50 grand prize draw on December 31st, entering 2022 $27,220 richer.

Clark came across an advertisement for the Soldiers’ 50/50 by chance. Having never participated in the raffle before, he decided to press his luck and purchase a ticket bundle.

Intuition led Clark down the right path, as he became the winner of the New Year’s Eve jackpot, with the third highest payout to date. As for what he’ll do with his new winnings, Clark has decided to settle a few bills and keep the rest for wherever his intuition leads him next.
