A Hamilton man was the only person to pick every game correctly on Football Pools (card 14, list 1348), winning a total of $111,541.50.
“I play football and hockey Pools whenever it is available,” shared the 38-year-old, who wished to remain anonymous.
He said he checked his phone following the final game and says he told his girlfriend that he had won big.
He says he plans to invest some of his winnings.
