Wayne Tomlinson of Oshawa is $100,000 richer after winning the top prize with INSTANT BLACKJACK CASINO.

The 51-year-old healthcare worker says he has been playing the lottery regularly for more than 15 years. “I love playing INSTANT tickets. I’ve tried many of the INSTANT games over the years,” he shared while at the OLG Prize Centre in Toronto to pick up his winnings. “This is my first big win!”

Tomlinson said he was at the store when he discovered his big win. “I handed the ticket to the clerk in hopes for a $20 win and the lottery terminal shut down because it was a $100,000 prize. I was shocked! I went home to tell my kids and they were so excited for me once they believed I was telling them the truth,” he laughed.

He plans on taking his children on a trip to celebrate his win. “We will have some fun in the sun.”

“This win feels good. I’m still kind of in shock.”
