Ontario Man Keeps Winning Lottery Prizes After Playing The Same Numbers Since Last Year

Antoine Beaini, a 67-year-old father from Milton, has been a lottery player since 1982, but he found his lucky numbers last year and stuck with them.

"I've been replaying the same numbers since early last year. I had a few small wins and decided I liked these numbers," he told OLG.

Beaini won a $1 million Maxmillions prize from the June 18, 2021 Lotto Max draw, so it's safe to say his numbers sure are lucky.

"I thought I won $10,000 at first but I scanned it again and saw $1 million and couldn't believe it," he said. "My wife thought I was joking!"

Beaini plans to invest his money, buy a new car and take his family on a trip, according to OLG.

"Wherever they want to go, I will take them."
