TORONTO, ONKaren Whiteford of Strathroy is $1 million richer after winning the top prize with INSTANT BIG 10 (Game #2057).

She shared the good news with her sister. "Her jaw dropped when I told her – she is very happy!”

Karen says she plans to help her family with her win, purchase a car, complete some small renovations and treat herself to some pizza. "I will use some for Christmas presents," she smiled.
