Lindsay Great-Grandfather Wins $50,000 On Instant Bingo

KAWARTHA LAKES-John, a 69-year-old great-grandfather, said he loves to play INSTANT BINGO.

“I was playing my tickets at home when I scanned the ticket using the OLG App,” he shared while at the OLG Prize Centre in Toronto to pick up his winnings. “My wife didn’t believe what we were seeing. I said, ‘The app doesn’t lie!’”

John said he’s won smaller prizes in the past but nothing this big. “It’s pretty exciting!”

He plans to put his money away for now.

INSTANT BINGO is available for $3 a play and the top prize is $50,000. Odds of winning any prize are 1 in 3.79.

The winning ticket was purchased at Canadian Tire Gas Bar on Kent Street in Lindsay.
