OLG recently congratulated Kenneth Lusk for winning a $250,002 prize with the new Hit Or Miss lottery game (March 21, 2018, Draw #15717).

“I’ve been playing Lotto 6/49 and Lottario for years,” Lusk told OLG while at the OLG Prize Centre. “But recently I have been playing Hit OR Miss.”

Lusk was checking his ticket at the ticket checker when he realized he won big.

“I saw the amount of $250,000 on the screen and had to ask the store owner to double check it for me. I’m still in disbelief!”

Lusk, a retired nurse, couldn’t wait to tell his wife of 17 years the good news.

“I told her to take a seat, showed her the winning ticket and her eyes went big – she was in shock too!”

Lusk told OLG he plans on paying off his mortgage and doing some travelling.

“I would also like to get a motorbike – if my wife lets me.”
