Anthony (Tony) Porter of Flesherton is $75,000 richer after winning with INSTANT RUN THE TABLE.
Tony, a 61-year-old father and grandfather, said he’s been a regular lottery player since the days of WINTARIO. “When I play INSTANT tickets, I look for the last ticket in the display,” he shared, while at the OLG Prize Centre in Toronto to pick up his winnings. “In this case, RUN THE TABLE was coupled with the other ticket I wanted, so I decided to take both.”
The hospitality worker played his ticket in the store and uncovered his big win. “I couldn’t believe what I was seeing,” he recounted. “It was a pretty exciting feeling!”
Tony shared the news with his daughter first. “She was a little stunned,” he said.
With his windfall, he plans to pay some bills, treat himself, and support an organization that’s close to his heart. “I’m part of a group that supports Operation Ho Ho Ho, and I plan to donate more to the cause this year. I’ll put the rest aside to ensure my kids and grandkids are taken care of. It feels good to have the freedom this prize gives me,” he concluded.
INSTANT RUN THE TABLE is available for $3 and the top prize is $75,000. Odds of winning any prize are 1 in 3.88. Visit the INSTANT page on OLG.ca for more information on this and other great games.
The winning ticket was purchased at Jung’s Jug City on Main Street in Dundalk.
At South Grey News, we endeavour to bring you truthful and factual, up-to-date local community news in a quick and easy-to-digest format that’s free of political bias. We believe this service is more important today than ever before, as social media has given rise to misinformation, largely unchecked by big corporations who put profits ahead of their responsibilities.
South Grey News does not have the resources of a big corporation. We are a small, locally owned-and-operated organization. Research, analysis and physical attendance at public meetings and community events requires considerable effort. But contributions from readers and advertisers, however big or small, go a long way to helping us deliver positive, open and honest journalism for this community.
