TORONTO, ON – Nicole Higgs of London is $1 million richer after winning with INSTANT BIG 10 (Game #2057).
Nicole, a 32-year-old mother said this ticket was given to her as an Easter gift from her boyfriend. “I played my ticket and then scanned it using the OLG Lottery App. When I saw Big Winner I gasped in shock,” she shared while at the OLG Prize Centre in Toronto to pick up her winnings.
The automotive industry worker said she went for a walk after discovering her win to get some fresh air while trying to comprehend reality. “I could hardly hold my phone I was shaking so much. Then I asked how many zeroes were in $1 million,” she laughed.
Nicole said she would like to take a trip when it’s safe to travel again. “Maybe I’ll purchase a cottage down the road. For now, I’ll enjoy having a million dollars in the bank,” she smiled.
