OLG congratulates 73-year-old Bennie Gardiner who purchased two separate 7 Pick tickets for the May 26, 2020 Daily Keno night draw, both of which resulted in prizes of $ 50,000.
He also won $ 2 on the Encore selection of one of his tickets, bringing his total winnings to $ 100,002.
“Daily Keno is my favorite game and I usually play my usual numbers,” said the retired retail manager.
“I felt vigorous that day, so I bought two tickets with the same numbers for the same draw. It paid off a lot. ”
The married father of two and the grandfather of two plan to spend part of his earnings on his mortgage and set it aside for a trip.
“I will also bring home a special bottle of wine for my wife so that we can celebrate this victory tonight,” said Gardiner, collecting his check.
The winning tickets were purchased at Big Bee Convenience on Queenston Road in Stoney Creek.
