According to the Ontario Lottery and Gaming Corporation (OLG), two unrelated Hamilton residents from Stoney Creek have recently claimed separate six-figure lottery prizes.

26-year-old Zachary Thomas recalled how his “adrenaline went sky high” after finding out he had won $125,000 after matching all eight numbers on the Daily KENO ticket that he bought from the Circle K on Highway 8.

Thomas plans to distribute the winnings among family members who have been adversely impacted by the COVID-19 pandemic.

I get as much joy helping others as I do from winning the lottery, This is an opportunity that will open many doors for me that would have taken a long time for me to work towards.” he said.

On the other side of the age spectrum, Andrija Konjek, a 72-year-old retired grandfather is plotting some well overdue vacations with his family, once travelling is safe, after landing a $743,000 win with the Lottario draw.

Konjek revealed that he only plays occasionally and asked his son to confirm the win as he was unsure whether his ticket, purchased at the Avondale on Highway 8, was worth anything.

Konjek recalled the sequence of events, saying, “When I checked my ticket at the store, I saw the number ‘7’ and lots of numbers after. I waited a few days and had my son check my ticket. My wife and I couldn’t believe it!
