A lucky Mississauga man is celebrating a big lotto win. 

OLG says that Francisco Rezendes won "Ontario's jackpot" - $215,852.30 in the October 10, 2020 Lottario draw.

Rezendes, a 75-year-old retiree, told OLG that he likes to play random numbers - but they're always the same.

"I checked my ticket using the OLG Lottery App," he said.

"I called my wife at work to tell her that I won, but she didn't believe it."

The father of two said he plans to use his winnings to purchase a new car.

The winning ticket was purchased at Hasty Market on Hurontario Street in Mississauga.

OLG is now accepting in-person prize claims by-appointment-only for customers with prizes of $1,000 or more who wish to claim at the OLG Prize Centre.
