Claire Seguin of Hawkesbury is celebrating after winning a $100,000 prize with Instant Ultra (Game #2053).
“I’ve played the lottery for years – last year I won $500 on a holiday ticket, $1,000 from a draw in October, and now $100,000 with a scratch ticket!” smiled Claire, a 52-year old food prep resto-bar worker, while at the OLG Prize Centre in Toronto to pick up her cheque.
On her way to get a friend’s birthday gift, Claire stopped and purchased a few INSTANT tickets. “I had two non-winners, then I scratched the INSTANT ULTRA ticket and won $100,000,” recalled Claire. “When I told them, my friends didn’t believe me!”
The mother of one, plans on doing some home renovations – installing a new floor after having the same flooring for 25 years and new counter tops.
“It’s surreal – right time, right place,” she smiled.
INSTANT ULTRA is available for $10 a play and the top prize is $1 million. Odds of winning any prize are 1 in 3.48.
The winning ticket was purchased at Shoppers Drug Mart in the Hawkesbury Mall on Spence Avenue in Hawkesbury.
