Michael Lyons of Burlington has just won $58,691.50 with Pools (Football Pools Card).
“I play Football Pools almost every week,” Lyons told OLG. “I play Lotto Max or Lotto 6/49 if the jackpot is high.”
Lyons, a 58-year-old investment advisor, told OLG he was anxiously waiting for his result as there was an extra game on Tuesday.
“I watched the games on Sunday, so I knew I was winning and had a chance at something bigger.”
Lyons told OLG that the intellectual challenge of getting the games right makes his win very satisfying.
He has no plans for his win at the moment.
The winning ticket was purchased at Longo’s on Walkers Line in Burlington.
