Port Hope resident wins $250,000
Karen Dobrini of Port Hope is $250,000 richer after winning with INSTANT SCRABBLE™ (Game #2372).
Karen, a 68-year-old retiree, said she’s been a regular lottery player for many years and when she saw an advertisement for INSTANT SCRABBLE™, she kept her eye out for it while at the store.
“I was at home in my favourite spot playing my ticket and kept matching words. When I realized I matched 11 words, I flipped the ticket over and saw I may have won $250,000!” she shared while at the OLG Prize Centre in Toronto to pick up her windfall. “I scanned it on the app and was shocked and laughed with disbelief.”
Karen shared her big news with her sister and husband, and they were both as shocked as she was. “It feels like a breath of fresh air – I feel blessed and happy. My 50th wedding anniversary is next year, so I plan to take my husband on an adventure to Nashville. The rest will be saved and enjoyed in retirement,” she concluded.
The winning ticket was purchased at Victoria Convenience on Victoria Street in Port Hope.
