TORONTO, ON – BINGO! Julita Gozum of Mississauga won $100,000 with INSTANT BINGO MULTIPLIER (Game #3072).
A 63-year-old dental administrator, Julita was at home when she discovered her win. “I had the ticket in my bag for a week before I took some time and played my ticket,” she shared, while at the OLG Prize Centre in Toronto to collect her cheque. “I uncovered a box and couldn’t believe my eyes! I checked and re-checked the ticket multiple times. I didn’t want to get my hopes dashed so I decided to go to the store and use the Ticket Checker. When I saw the ‘Big Winner’ message my hands started shaking!”
Julita and her husband are planning to shop for a new car. “I really want to prioritize helping my family and sharing some of my winnings with them. This win will have an impact on many lives,” she smiled.
