KAWARTHA LAKES-Trent Kroll of Lindsay is celebrating after winning a $75,000 top prize with INSTANT POKER
Kroll, a 58-year-old outdoor enthusiast and avid fisherman, said the store clerk chose this ticket for him. “I was watching TV while playing my tickets with my lucky dime when I realized I won,” he shared while at the OLG Prize Centre in Toronto to pick up his winnings. “My heart stopped, and mind started racing! I thought this couldn’t be real, and checked my ticket using the OLG App about 30 times,” he admitted.
Trent said when he called his sister, he was speaking so fast he couldn’t find the words he was trying to get out! “She had to ask me, ‘What are you saying?’” he laughed.
He plans to use his win to pay some bills and get a place of his own. “I am dumbfounded – it hasn’t really sunk in yet. I feel like I’m in a daze.”
The winning ticket was purchased at Shell on Lindsay Street in Lindsay.
