Retired Brampton Nurse Enjoying Big Lotto Win

A retired Brampton resident is enjoying a pretty significant windfall.

OLG recently congratulated Kenneth Lusk for winning a $250,002 prize with the new Hit Or Miss lottery game (March 21, 2018, Draw #15717).

OLG says Lusk matched all of his 12 numbers to win a top prize of $250,000. He also won $2 on another selection, bringing his total winnings to $250,002.

“I’ve been playing Lotto 6/49 and Lottario for years,” Lusk told OLG while at the OLG Prize Centre. “But recently I have been playing Hit OR Miss.”

Lusk was checking his ticket at the ticket checker when he realized he won big.

“I saw the amount of $250,000 on the screen and had to ask the store owner to double check it for me. I’m still in disbelief!”

Lusk, a retired nurse, couldn’t wait to tell his wife of 17 years the good news.

“I told her to take a seat, showed her the winning ticket and her eyes went big – she was in shock too!”

Lusk told OLG he plans on paying off his mortgage and doing some travelling.

“I would also like to get a motorbike – if my wife lets me.”

Hit Or Miss is a new lottery game where players can win a top prize of $250,000 by matching All or None of the numbers drawn. Players can watch the draws as they happen on the OLG Lottery App or on OLG.ca. Hit Or Miss is $2 per play and is only available at OLG retail locations.

The winning ticket was purchased at Bartley Smoke on Bartley Bull Parkway in Brampton.
