Toronto, ON – Donald Legere of St. Catharines won a $250,000 top prize with INSTANT CASH OUT MULTIPLIER (Game #2223).
Donald, a 59-year-old married father, said he scratched his ticket while taking a break in his truck. “When I saw the prize amount, I didn’t believe it at first. Winning the top prize is unheard of! I had to check it a few times. Then I got scared,” he laughed.
Wondering what to do next, Donald called OLG to make sure what he was seeing was real. “I waited for my wife to come home from work and I showed her the ticket. She didn’t notice the win until I held up the validation slip and got very excited!”
Donald said this win comes at a perfect time in his life. “I plan to retire in the next few years and this win will allow my wife and I to fulfill our dreams of owning a cottage and travelling during our retirement.”
“I still can’t believe a $10 INSTANT ticket has netted me $250,000. It’s scary to think I’m leaving with a cheque for a quarter of a million dollars,” he concluded.
The winning ticket was purchased at Avondale on Ontario Street in St. Catharines.
