COLLINGWOOD RESIDENT WINS $1 MILLION TOP PRIZE WITH INSTANT X
TORONTO, ON – David Kaasalainen of Collingwood is $1 million richer after winning the top prize with INSTANT X (Game #2202).
David says this is his second big win. "I won $66,000 with a group of 10 in the late 1990's," he shared while at the OLG Prize Centre in Toronto to pick up his winnings. "I bought some tickets on my way home from work and scratched them at home. I was very excited when I saw I won big!"
"The first thing I thought to do was call my family. Everyone was very surprised," he said.
"It's fantastic. I don't know how to describe this feeling," David smiled.
David plans to purchase an SUV, upgrade his cottage, invest for retirement, and pay some bills with his winnings.
INSTANT X is available for $10 and the top prize is $1 million. Odds of winning any prize are 1 in 3.56. Visit the INSTANT page on OLG.ca for more information on this and other great games.
