A local retired couple is $250,000 richer.
That’s according to OLG, who says Suzzanne Tanguay Gervais and Raymond Gervais of Sturgeon Falls won the money with INSTANT BINGO MULTIPLIER.
The couple has been playing INSTANT tickets together for 13 years.
“I was at home scratching tickets when I noticed I almost uncovered a box on my BINGO ticket. When I told Raymond, he grabbed the ticket and went through every number to confirm,” shared Suzzanne while at the OLG Prize Centre in Toronto to pick up their winnings. “When we realized we won, we jumped up and down and hugged each other while shedding a few tears of joy,” she said.
“We were so happy. It was such an unexpected blessing. We felt so grateful and had a hard time sleeping that night,” said Raymond.
They plan to purchase a new car and pay some bills with their windfall.
“We will treat the people we love, and the rest will be put aside to enjoy our retirement,” concluded Raymond.
The winning ticket was purchased at Quick Pick Variety on John Street in Sturgeon Falls.
