Toronto, ON – Beg, good and chili were only some of the words that Thomas Lacroix of Victoria Harbour revealed on her INSTANT CROSSWORD DELUXE (Game #2232) ticket to win a $250,000 top prize.
Thomas, a married father of two, says he is a regular lottery player and enjoys INSTANT CROSSWORDS. "It’s my time to relax – sit back and play my tickets, " he shared.
He noticed that his ticket revealed a lot of words, so he checked it using the OLG Lottery App. "I was in shock," he said. "My daughter was shocked too!"
Thomas plans to purchase a car, buy a new boat and take his family to Disney World when it's safe.
"This win will help with my retirement," he concluded.
