M’CHIGEENG—Playing bingo has always been a popular pastime for Ontarians, but you don’t always need a bingo dabber to win big. Congratulations to M’Chigeeng First Nation resident Jennifer Streubel who won a $50,000 top prize with INSTANT BINGO (Game #3019).
“A simple trip to the store has changed my life,” exclaimed Ms. Streubel while at the OLG Prize Centre in Toronto where she picked up her winnings. “I went shopping for food and an INSTANT BINGO ticket and came away a winner.”
Ms. Streubel needed a friend to check the ticket to be sure. “I was so excited that I just started yelling and screaming,” she said.
Ms. Streubel has great plans for her windfall. “A portion will go to my daughter’s college fund and the rest will be put into savings.”
INSTANT BINGO is available for $3 a play and the top prize is $50,000. To win, players need to scratch a line, 4 corners, a letter T, a letter X or an outside box on their Bingo game cards. Odds of winning a prize are 1 in 3.45.
The winning ticket was purchased at West Bay General Store on Highway 540 in M’Chigeeng First Nation.
