The Daily Observer - - NEWS -

Terry Picard of Petawawa is cel­e­brat­ing af­ter win­ning $68,248.50 with POOLS, Foot­ball Pool Card #90 (List #1200). “Af­ter mak­ing my picks and pur­chas­ing my ticket, I went home to watch the games,” shared Picard, while at the OLG Prize Cen­tre in Toronto to pick up his win­nings. “By the Sun­day night, I re­al­ized that I had 12 of 13 picks cor­rect and only needed one more win on Mon­day. I was so ex­cited!” The re­tired drafts­man watched the game on Mon­day night and when his team won, he im­me­di­ately checked the prize amounts on OLG.ca.

“I was in shock. I thought I’d win about $3,000,” he laughed. While Picard’s wife has her sights set on a new kitchen, he wants to in­dulge in the ex­pe­ri­ence of life­time.

“I’m go­ing to Ve­gas! I want to drive a Lam­borgh­ini or any other fancy car on the race track,” he smiled. POOLS is the sports game that’s easy to play. Each $5 wa­ger al­lows you to pick your sport and card num­ber and se­lect who you think will win each matchup. Get the most cor­rect picks and win or share the prize pool! The win­ning ticket was pur­chased at Pronto Re­tail Cen­tre on Petawawa Boule­vard.


Terry Picard of Petawawa is all smiles as he shows off his cheque for more than $68,000 won through the Pools sports game. He re­cently trav­elled to Toronto to pick up his money and he has big plans on how he is go­ing to spent a part off his win­nings.
