Sequel, flow and quantity were only some of the words that Beverley Bradley of Hamilton revealed on her Instant Crossword Tripler scratch ticket to win a $100,000 top prize.
The 57-year-old married mother of three and grandmother of 13, has been a regular Instant ticket player since last year.
Bradley said she discovered her win at home when she checked her ticket using the OLG Lottery App.
“After I scanned my ticket, I called the OLG Support Centre and then went to the store to validate my ticket,” she said while at the OLG Prize Centre in Toronto to pick up her cheque.
