A Pickering man is celebrating after recently winning $100,000 0n OLG’s Instant 21.

Pickering’s Bevin Boreland said he’s been playing Instant games since he was old enough to start buying tickets.

“I noticed this ticket was new, so I decided to pick one up,” he said while at the OLG Prize Centre in Toronto to pick up his cheque.

The 47-year-old father discovered his big win when he checked his ticket at the store.

“I was shocked! I checked it about three times because I didn’t believe it,” he said.

Boreland said he first shared the news about his win with his friend.

“She was so happy for me,” he said.

He said he plans to share his win with family and friends.

“I will treat myself to a trip when it’s safe to travel,” he said. “I was totally stunned. I’ve always dreamt about winning.”

The winning ticket was purchased at Yoons Convenience on Kingston Road in Pickering.
