Congratulations to Kevin Reid of Grafton for going ‘ALL IN’ to win the POKER LOTTO ALL IN jackpot worth $82,463.20 on November 28, 2016. Kevin also won $5,000 on the instant portion of his POKER LOTTO play, bringing his total winnings to $87,463.20!
“The jackpot was high and I decided to go ‘ALL IN,’” shared Kevin while at the OLG Prize Centre in Toronto where he picked up his winnings. “When I hit a Royal Flush I didn’t even notice. I was in the middle of a conversation with another customer when the retailer started screaming, ‘You won more than $87,000!’”
The married father and grandfather of two was congratulated by everyone in the store. “It was high fives all around. Then, OLG called to verify the win.”
Kevin has big plans for his windfall. “I know where this money is going. My wife is about to get the biggest, coolest, Christmas gift! I know she’ll be reading this story in the paper so I can’t share much more because I want it to be a surprise. She will be happy and that makes me happy too! Plus, we are planning a trip to Vegas in the New Year. Then, I plan to invest the rest. I can’t even explain what winning the lottery feels like because I don’t think it’s sunk in yet,” concluded Kevin.
The winning ticket was purchased at Harwood Family Variety on Rice Lake Scenic Drive in Harwood.
