Kenneth Kellar of Thessalon is celebrating after winning a top prize with INSTANT CASH FOR LIFE (Game #1173). Kenneth has accepted the payments of $1,000 a week for life.
“I’ve been playing the lottery for about 10 years,” shared Kenneth, while at the OLG Prize Centre in Toronto to pick up his winnings. “I enjoy playing LOTTO MAX and LOTTO 6/49 with ENCORE.”
Kenneth’s wife of 29 years purchased the INSTANT ticket for him as a gift, not realizing she had picked a winner for life. “I played the ticket, and could not believe what I saw,” laughed Kenneth, a father of two. “I handed it to my wife and she rechecked it three times before we started celebrating!”
The 57-year-old forester plans on using his winnings to enjoy his retirement.
“This could not have worked out better for me – it still hasn’t quite set in. I’m feeling great,” Kenneth concluded.
INSTANT CASH FOR LIFE is available for $4 a play and the top prize is $1,000 a week for life. Odds of winning a prize are 1 in 3.93.
The winning ticket was purchased at Rexall on Trunk Road in Sault Ste. Marie.
