“I noticed there wasn’t a long line at the cash register, so I decided to check my tickets with the cashier,” he told OLG. “Then the cashier said, ‘Don’t go anywhere, OLG needs to speak with you.’ I had no clue how much I won.”
When Robinson realized he won he said, “Wow, this is an exciting appetizer to the main course – a jackpot win.”
Robinson told OLG he plans to invest his winnings.
“I feel like my eyes have been opened to the possibilities,” he concluded.
The winning ticket was purchased at Shoppers Drug Mart on Mountainash Road in Brampton.
OLG is now accepting in-person prize claims by-appointment-only for customers with prizes of $1,000 or more who wish to claim at the OLG Prize Centre.
