Paramjit Singh of Oakville got himself a little something on his mom’s birthday.

The 59-year-old father of three is $50,000 richer after his Daily Keno 10 Pick came through in the evening draw on May 18th.

Singh checked his ticket and discovered he was a winner.

“I won in the draw that was held on my mom’s birthday,” he revealed, while at the OLG Prize Centre in Toronto to pick up his windfall. “The machine shut down and the cashier said he hadn’t seen that happen before!”

Singh said he has been playing Daily Keno since the game started. He also plays Lotto Max and Lotto 6/49 when the jackpots are high.

He shared news of his win with his wife by sending her a photo of the ticket checker.

“She was overjoyed,” Singh said with a smile. “We shared the news with family on a video call so they could share in the excitement. They were so happy for me.”

Singh plans to give a portion of his win to his daughter as a surprise.

“I also moved into a new home recently, so this money will help,” he said. “Winning has been a great experience – I feel so happy.”

 Singh purchased the winning ticket at the Petro Canada station on Third Line in Oakville.
