Cole Moulton of Hornepayne is $500,000 richer after winning with INSTANT REEL CASH (Game #2360).
Cole, a 20-year-old soon to be father, said he’s been a frequent lottery player since he turned 18. He recently started playing LOTTO MAX and LOTTO 6/49, but especially likes INSTANT tickets. This is his first big win!
Cole and his girlfriend were on the way back from a fun day at the casino when they stopped at the store to get some snacks. While they were there, Cole decided to purchase a few tickets. “They were just staring at me – how could I not pick one up?” he joked, while at the OLG Prize Centre in Toronto to claim his windfall.
He played his tickets and was surprised to uncover a big win. “I asked my girlfriend to double-check my ticket, as I didn’t want to get too excited before confirming the win was real. To our surprise, it was! I began to cry tears of joy as I held it in my hand.”
With his winnings, Cole plans to purchase a new car for himself and a truck for his girlfriend. “I also plan to go back to school and start my own business,” he said.
“It’s a blessing to know that I’ll now be able to take care of my girlfriend and our child, as we are expecting. This could not have happened at a better time, and I feel so lucky.”
