Toronto, ON – William Bradley of Arthur was struck by the LIGHTNING LOTTO jackpot on January 29, 2021. The top prize, which started at $125,000, had grown to $371,935.20 before it was won! William also won $2 on another one of his LIGHTNING LOTTO selections, bringing his total winnings to 371,937.20!
“The first time I played LIGHTNING LOTTO I won $17 so I’ve been playing it ever since,” shared the great-grandfather while at the OLG Prize Centre to pick up his winnings.
The farmer, who raises quarter horses, said it was the day of his 82nd birthday when he purchased his ticket. “I was out running errands that day and was compelled to play a round of LIGHTNING LOTTO,” he shared. “The clerk at the store was so excited for me. I was calm and cool – she asked me what was wrong because I wasn’t as excited as her,” he laughed.
William said he may purchase some land with his winnings and share with his family. “When it’s safe to travel again, I plan to do some exploring – I’ve always wanted to go to Ireland,” he concluded.
The winning ticket was purchased at Pioneer Snack Express on Wellington Road in Arthur.
