STONEY CREEK RESIDENT WINS $250,000 WITH INSTANT CROSSWORD DELUXE

Toronto, ON Denise Upton of Stoney Creek is celebrating after winning a $250,000 top prize with INSTANT CROSSWORD DELUXE (Game #2244).

Denise, a mother and grandmother, said this ticket was a gift. “CROSSWORD tickets are my favourite,” she shared while at the OLG Prize Centre in Toronto to pick up her winnings. “I played a few boards then put it aside and picked it up a few weeks later. When I saw how many words I uncovered, I thought it was a gag gift until I scanned it using the OLG App.”

Denise said her win still doesn’t feel real. “It’s unimaginable – I feel completely blessed that I’ve been given this opportunity that most people don’t get.”

She plans to pay some bills, help her daughter with education costs, help some friends and travel when it’s safe.

“It will make life a little more comfortable,” she smiled.
