A Hamilton resident is celebrating after a big lottery win.
OLG has congratulated 57 year old Francis Burtt for winning the top prize of $250,000 in the Instant Super Money Multiplier.
“It was a surreal feeling when I scanned my ticket and discovered this big win,” said Burtt. “It didn’t seem to be true.”
Coincidentally, this is Burtt’s second lottery win — he won $25,000 in the Instant Crossword game about 15 years prior.
