A Waterloo man won more than $56,000 in a POOLS game.

Mohamed Adan took home $56,472 in a football pools win. He said he always watches the games and follows along on his tickets.

“It feels great to win. I will use this toward a down payment on a house,” he said in a news release.

Due to the province-wide lockdown, Adan received his win at home.

He purchased his winning ticket at Husky Gas Bar on Highland Road in Kitchener.
