TORONTO, ON – Phillip King of Wikwemikong is $250,000 richer after winning with INSTANT SONIC MULTIPLIER (Game #2190).
A 67-year-old retired custodian, Phillip was at home when he discovered his win. “I matched the number I needed and couldn’t believe my eyes,” he shared, while at the OLG Prize Centre in Toronto to pick up his cheque. “I walked right out the door to the store to validate my ticket, and that’s when it became a reality,” he smiled.
While on his way to the store, he ran into his niece who was heading there at the same time. “I showed her my ticket – she was so excited!”
The grandfather plans to purchase a new vehicle with his winnings. “I’m going to buy a new truck and enjoy the process of shopping for it without having to be on a budget,” he said. He also plans to share with his children.
“It’s still hard to believe. I don’t think it will really sink it until it’s deposited into the bank,” he concluded.
