TORONTO – Linda McCleery of Paisley is $75,000 richer after winning with Instant Uno.
The 61-year-old was at the store to buy some licorice after a tough day, but there wasn’t any available.
“So, I bought an INSTANT ticket instead,” McCleery shared, while at the OLG Prize Centre in Toronto recently to pick up her cheque.
McCleery, who usually plays Lotto Max and Lotto 6/49, played her Instant Uno ticket while at the store and handed it to the cashier to check.
“He told me that I was a big winner,” she explained. “I was so tired, I thought I was dreaming!”
“I felt like I was being rewarded for being a good mom. I am so grateful. It was the most wonderful $3 I’ve ever spent!” she added.
McCleery plans to share her winnings with her family, pay some bills and save for a future vacation.
The winning ticket was purchased at Midtown Foodmart on Queen Street in Paisley.
