Lise Breton of Sturgeon Falls won $150,000 with The Bigger Spin Instant game.
“I love playing Instant games. This is my first big win,” said Breton while at the OLG Prize Centre in Toronto to pick up her winnings.
Breton, who is retired from the restaurant industry, said the store clerk checked her ticket and told her she was a big winner.
“I thought it was $150 and she told me to look again. When I saw it was $150,000, I said ‘Are you joking?’ and left the store in disbelief!”
Breton shared the good news with her boyfriend, friends and family.
“Everyone is so happy for me. I just can’t believe it!”
She plans to share her win with family, complete some home renovations, and adopt a dog.
“This is the perfect opportunity to get myself a dog. My black lab puppy will be coming home to me in about a week,” Breton said.
“This is a chance of a lifetime. It’s a dream.”
The winning ticket was purchased at Necessities on Couchie Industrial Road.
