OTTAWA RESIDENT WINS $250,000 WITH INSTANT CROSSWORD DELUXE

Toronto, ON Linda Kinsella of Ottawa is celebrating after winning a $250,000 top prize with INSTANT CROSSWORD DELUXE (Game #2260).

Linda, a 62-year-old hospitality worker, said she treats herself to an INSTANT CROSSWORD every couple of weeks. “I like to save all my small wins to put towards other tickets,” she shared while at the OLG Prize Centre in Toronto to pick up her cheque.

Linda said when she checked her ticket on the OLG App she thought it couldn’t be right, so she called her niece over to double check. “She confirmed it and it didn’t seem real.”

A teary Linda said this windfall is like a dream. “I plan to use some as a down payment on a house. The rest will be put aside for my retirement and to travel to the United Kingdom to visit family.”
