A 25-year-old Brampton woman has won $250,000 after a win playing the Instant Big Hit lottery game.
Research associate Noella Noronha said she only occasionally plays the lottery, and this is her first big win.
“The cashier mentioned a new ticket, so I tried it out,” Noronha said.
She was playing her ticket on her front porch and didn’t think she won at first.
“I scanned my ticket using the OLG Lottery App and Big Winner appeared! I was overjoyed — I felt like I was seeing stars.” Noronha said, adding she can pay off her student loans.
