A Hamilton man thought his eyes were deceiving him when he saw that he won the Lotto 6/49 second prize on Oct. 30, 2021.

Frank Briatico of Stoney Creek won $50,355.40.

“I thought I won $50, but when I put my glasses on, I saw all the commas,” said the 65-year-old father and entrepreneur. “When I showed my wife, her eyes popped.”

Briatico plans to pay some bills with his winnings.

The winning ticket was purchased at Petro Canada on Mud Street in Stoney Creek.

Lotto 6/49 is $3 per play and draws take place on Wednesdays and Saturdays.
