A Stoney Creek resident recently found a double dose of amazing luck.

OLG is congratulating 73 year old Bennie Gardiner, who purchased two separate 7 Pick tickets for the May 26, 2020 Daily Keno Evening draw which both resulted in $50,000 prizes.

He also won $2 on the Encore selection of one of his tickets, bringing his total winnings to $100,002.

“Daily Keno is my favourite game and I usually play my regular numbers,” said the retired retail manager.

“I was feeling vigorous that day so I bought two tickets with the same numbers for the same draw. It paid off big time.”

The married father of two and grandfather of two plans to put some of his winning towards his mortgage and set some aside for a trip.

“I’m also going to bring home a special bottle of wine for my wife so we can celebrate this win tonight,” Gardiner said while picking up his cheque.

The winning tickets were purchased at Big Bee Convenience on Queenston Road in Stoney Creek.
