An Alaska cruise awaits a 53 year-old Bowmanville man after a pack of tickets that “intrigued” him turned into a $50,000 lottery win with INSTANT HIGH ROLLER CASINO.

Brett Mathers said the pack of tickets caught his eye so he decided to try it out. “I bought this pack of tickets in November and played them in February. When I got to the third ticket, it looked like I won something, but thought it was maybe about $50,” he shared while at the OLG Prize Centre in Toronto to pick up his cheque. “When I scanned the ticket on the OLG App and saw $50,000, I had to scan it another four times. I was so surprised!”

Mathers said he wasn’t expecting this win. “I’m very thankful for sure. I will save this and go on an Alaskan cruise to go see the beautiful glaciers.”

The winning ticket was purchased at Pioneer Snack Express on Liberty Street in Bowmanville.
