TORONTO, ON – Michele (Mike) Di Pinto of Woodbridge got way into the game to win $75,904.90 with POOLS (Football Pools Card #3, List #1342).
"I've been playing POOLS for 10 years," shared Mike, while at the OLG Prize Centre in Toronto to pick up his cheque. "I love sports – mostly hockey and football."
The morning after the last games on the card, Mike checked proline.ca for the results. "I had to look a few times before it really sunk in," said the 34-year old insurance broker. "It felt great. I couldn't wait to tell my wife!"
Mike has big plans for his win. "I am going to save and invest this win," he said. "It's great opportunity for my wife to have more time with our baby. This gives us time together as a family."
