TORONTO, ON – Joy Martin of Cornwall is $75,000 richer after winning the top prize with INSTANT EMOJI$ (Game #2319).
Joy, a retiree from the service industry, has been playing the lottery with OLG for decades. “My favourite games to play are INSTANT tickets. This is my first big win,” she shared while at the OLG Prize Centre in Toronto to pick up her winnings.
Joy was playing her ticket at home when she discovered her big win. “I didn’t believe my eyes! I called my stepson to come over and have a look at the ticket. He used the OLG App and I thought I was going to scream – my whole body was shaking!”
Joy plans to share her win with family. “I’ll get some new eyeglasses and have some fun celebrating this win,” she smiled.
