Oh, so that's what it looks like to win $24.5 million.

Winston Parks of Toronto didn't believe he had won a huge 6/49 jackpot at first.

"I checked on my laptop and I checked on my desktop too," the great-grandfather said in a news release from Ontario Lottery and Gaming on Tuesday.

His family members helped confirm it — and Parks said he plans to share the wealth.

"I purchased the ticket, but my whole family won," Parks said.

“It makes me happy to make others happy. I have lived a full life so this big win will give the people I love the opportunity to live full lives of their own.”

The winning ticket was purchased at Petro-Canada on Bayview Avenue in Toronto.
