A Windsor man got the best father’s day gift ever when he won $50,000 on the OLG’s daily KENO draw.

“It was the best Father’s Day gift ever!” says John McLeod while at the OLG Prize Centre in Toronto where he picked up his winnings.

“I checked my numbers online that Sunday morning and all the numbers started looking familiar. I asked my wife, who was sitting beside me, to pinch me to make sure I wasn’t dreaming.”

John headed to the store to validate his ticket. “The retailer confirmed I was a winner! I’ve been playing with the same number selection for six years. I won with this selection before but never anything this big.”

It took a moment for the good news to sink in. “When I found out I won I was shocked and excited and I still can’t believe it!”

The winning ticket was purchased at Mac’s on Lauzon Road in Windsor.
