A Hamilton man is considerably richer after a recent lottery win.

OLG congratulated Waterdown resident Richard Whiteman for winning a Super Draw prize worth $100,000 in the March 25 Lotto 6/49 draw.

The retiree says he’s been playing Lotto 6/49 for 30 years.

“I used the OLG App to check my tickets and when I saw all the zeroes, I had to check it on my iPad so I could see it better,” said Whiteman, who was shocked to see how much he’d won. “I showed my wife and she screamed ‘Ricky, you won $100,000!'”

Whiteman says he’s still deciding what to do with his prize money.

The winning ticket was purchased at Sobeys on Dundas Street in Waterdown.

OLG says the Lotto 6/49 Super Draw included 10 $100,000 guaranteed prize draws in addition to the Gold Ball Draw and the Classic Draw.
