Oshawa resident dreams big with big win

Oshawa resident Fredrick Hines is now $1 million richer thanks to a winning ticket for a Maxmillions prize.

Hines, a recent retiree, says he played the lottery weekly.

“I won this on a $2 ticket,” he says.

The father and grandfather says he laughed in disbelief when he discovered his big win.

“I called my wife and asked if she was sitting down because we just won $1 million,” he exclaims. “She was so happy.”

He says the win feels good.

“It makes retirement easier and more relaxing,” adds the 68-year-old. “It changes the comfort level for sure.”

Hines says he plans to purchase a house, save some and enjoy the rest of his winnings.

The winning ticket was purchased at Flying J on Pettit Road in Fort Erie.
