Burlington resident went “all in” and hit the jackpot

Matthew Brennan of Burlington never had any fear of losing his shirt. Instead he went all in and collected the jackpot.

Brennan’s prize for winning the Poker Lotto is $87,840.90. But that’s not all. He also claimed $5,000 on the instant portion of his Poker Lotto play. His total haul is $92,840.90.

Brennan, 63, said he decided to give Poker Lotto a try while at Big Bear Food Mart on Appleby Line purchasing other tickets.

“I saw that I won something but didn’t realize I hit the jackpot,” he said. “It was a pleasant surprise – I couldn’t wait to tell my wife.”

Brennan said winning feels great and plans to put away his windfall for a rainy day.

Poker Lotto players can opt for “All In” for an additional $1 to take a chance on instantly winning a jackpot that starts at $10,000 and grows until it is won. Visit the Poker Lotto page on for more information about All In.
