KAWARTHA LAKES-A Woodville farmer is $100,000 richer after winning with INSTANT DOUBLE YOUR MONEY (Game #2211).
Charles Graves said he’s been playing the lottery for decades and enjoys INSTANT tickets.
After getting gas one morning, he checked his ticket at the same. “The clerk started jumping up and down and said, ‘You’re a big winner!’ She was more excited than I was,” he laughed.
Charles went home and told his wife the big news. “She was very surprised!”
Charles plans to take his time before spending his windfall but has some plans in mind. “I’m going to replace my truck which has 300,000 kilometers on it. And I’d like to get a tractor with an air-conditioned cab,” he concluded.
