Deep River scores second big winner in OLG instant game


Deep River has a second big winner in one of Ontario’s instant win scratch-off lottery games.

Virginia Spence recently won $100,000 in OLG’s Instant Crossword game with a ticket purchased at Daisy Mart on Highway 17.

Now, OLG has announced that David Stewart of Deep River has won a $50,000 top prize on an Instant Bingo card purchased at the Plaza Confectionary on Champlain St.

OLG said David likes to play different lottery games to mix it up.

“I typically buy Instant Crossword or Instant Bingo,” he shared while at the OLG Prize Centre in Toronto to pick up his cheque.

The 36-year-old said he was very excited to learn he was a big winner after his retailer checked the ticket on the lottery terminal.

“I dashed out of the store to tell my dad,” he said.

“I’m so happy – I am going to buy a jacuzzi!” he declared.
