TORONTO, ON – Leslie and Jodi Smith of Winchester are $500,000 richer after winning with INSTANT $500,000 JACKPOT (Game #2252).
Leslie and Jodi, a married couple, are regular lottery players and said they discovered their win at home one evening. “I scanned the ticket using the OLG App and said, ‘Isn’t that nice, we won $500!” shared Jodi. “I dropped the phone when handing it over to Leslie. I didn’t know what to say!”
The pair plan to fix some things around the house and purchase a new truck.
“It still doesn’t feel real,” said Leslie. “I have no words – I’m just speechless,” added Jodi.
