A 77-year-old grandmother from Markham is $100,000 richer after winning the OLG’s INSTANT BINGO DOUBLER.
But, at first, Joan Copeland didn’t realize how much she’d won.
“I took it to the store and the clerk had to tell me I won big!” she told OLG with a laugh.
Not only that but Copeland won $50,000 “a few years back,” on the same game which, not surprisingly, is her favourite.
She says he plans to share her winnings with family and save the rest.
Her winning ticket was bought at Loblaws on Bullock Drive in Markham.
