A nurse from Ajax just got a “big boost” in form of $50,000 in lottery winnings.

Sheron Campbell, 60, picked her numbers in a Daily Keno Draw at the Hearst Corner Store on George Street in Hearst up in northern Ontario.

Campbell has won small prizes in the past, but nothing close to this win. When she scanned her ticket in the OLG app early in the morning, “I saw all the zeros appear and I couldn’t believe it,” she told the OLG, “I was shocked, I thought it couldn’t be right.”

She immediately called her daughter. Laughing Campbell said, “She wasn’t fully awake when I told her – so when she called me later that day she asked if our conversation in the morning was real.”

She said she plans to save her winnings as they are “A big boost to me.”

Winners of under $49,999 are asked to submit their claims online. Winners of over $50,000 can call 1-800-387-0098 to arrange prize pick up.
