A family from Oshawa is nearly $125,000 richer after a Pools sports bet win

Married couple Dawna and Ernest Gay play Pools every Sunday with their son Corey. The game entails a $5 wager and the selection of who would win in a variety of match-ups. The family bought their ticket at One Stop Trading on Park Road in Oshawa.

“I had a good feeling about this ticket,” said Ernest Gay while at the OLG Prize Centre in Toronto, regarding his picks. “I scanned the ticket on the OLG app and woke up Ernest and said we won a lot,” added Dawna Gay.

The trio learned they had won $124,594.50.

The family said they only told a few family members about the win. “They were all happy for us,” Dawna Gay said.

The three winners plan to celebrate with a nice dinner.
