Toronto Staff Writer

A man from Ajax cashed in on his beginner's luck with the Ontario lottery and has a big cheque to prove it.

Rhys Welch won $100,000 his first time playing Daily Keno 9 Pick in the May 13, 2021 midday draw.

Welch said to OLG, "A friend from work told me to try it out, so I randomly selected these numbers and I won!"

The 29-year-old couldn't even believe the news was true, according to OLG. "I just kept saying this didn't happen and kept checking my email."

The father of one plans to use some of the money for his daughter's education and take a vacation.
