Bingo! Carol Bissonnette of Casselman won a $50,000 prize with INSTANT BINGO (Game #3034).

“I’m loyal to my INSTANT BINGO and INSTANT CROSSWORD games,” shared the regular lottery player while at the OLG Prize Centre in Toronto to pick up her winnings. “This is my first big win!”

The 59-year-old retail worker says she was playing her ticket while watching TV and not really paying attention.

“I noticed I was getting a few lines and the next thing I knew I needed a B4 and it came up. I was so excited! My husband saw me jumping up and down and said, ‘You and your $3 wins,'” she laughed. “We checked the ticket together using the OLG App and we both danced when we saw the Big Winner screen!”

Bissonnette, who purchased the winning ticket at MacEwen on Concession Street in Russell, plans to complete some home improvements, purchase a new TV and save the rest. “I also want to take my grandmother on a trip to Toronto to celebrate together.”

“Even though my name is on the cheque, I can’t believe I won,” she concluded.
