Retired Paramedic Wins Lottery

BRANTFORD – Brantford resident, Walter Rieser, 72, has won $100,000 in the OLG’s Lotto Max draw on July 3rd.


Rieser is a retired paramedic, husband, father, and grandfather. He says he discovered his win at home on his balcony. “I checked my ticket using the OLG Lottery App,” says Rieser. “I got right shaky with my nerves – I’ve never won anything like that in my life. (My wife) thought I was joking, I had to show her on my phone so she would believe me.”

Rieser plans to enjoy shopping for a new vehicle, pay some bills, help his grandkids with their education, as well as share with his sons.

The winning ticket was purchased at Hasty Market on Colborne Street in Brantford.
