An Oshawa woman is $ 100,000 richer after winning the award with a scratch card while waiting for her oven to preheat.
Teresa Hughes bought the winning Instant Payline Multiplier Ticket at Hogel’s Variety on Taunton Road in Oshawa.
“I got the number 16 and I was thinking that it was my late brother’s hockey jersey number,” the retired factory worker told OLG. “Then I realized that I had won $ 100,000! My husband and I checked the lottery ticket with the OLG lottery app and were speechless! We turned off the stove and went to tell our daughter. “
Hughes said she plans to use her winnings to buy a new trailer.
“I love having a trailer and I’ve always had a used one. I’m so excited. I will spend the summer in the north. “
