Congratulations to Mark Cresswell of Bradford for winning a top prize of $100,000 with the OLG’s Instant 25X Winner Wonderland.
“I didn’t play my ticket immediately after I purchased it,” shared Mark, while at the OLG Prize Centre in Toronto to pick up his cheque. “I actually left on my desk for a few days.”
When Mark finally scratched his ticket, he was shocked. “I saw that I won $100,000 but I couldn’t believe it so I went to the store and used the Ticket Checker. Though I saw the words ‘Big Winner’ on the screen, I was still in shock. It wasn’t until I validated my ticket and learned about how to claim my prize that I became very excited!”
The self-employed father of three called his wife to share the good news. “She did not believe me so I sent her a picture of my winning ticket,” laughed Mark.
Mark plans on investing most of his windfall for his children’s future. “I’m also planning on taking my wife away later this year to celebrate our 20th wedding anniversary,” he smiled. “I always play hoping to win, and now that I have won, I feel incredible.”
The winning ticket was purchased at Bradford #1 Smoke & Variety on Holland Street in Bradford.
