Benedetto Ercolani of Milton has just won $50,000 in the September 29, 2021 evening draw as a result of his daily Keno 9 Pick.

Ercolani, a 66-year-old father and grandfather, told OLG he plays regular numbers made up of significant family dates.

“I was checking my tickets on the OLG App and wasn’t really paying attention,” he told OLG. “When I heard the winning jingle, I put my glasses on and I was shocked! It was unbelievable at the time.”

Ercolani told OLG this win is a great opportunity for him and his wife to enjoy retirement together. “Maybe we’ll purchase a new car in the future.”

“I’m so grateful and thankful for this win,” he concluded.

 The winning ticket was purchased at West End Smoke Shoppe on Main Street in Milton.
