An Amherstburg woman is $100,000 richer after she won an OLG scratch ticket.

“I’ve been a fan of instant tickets for the past ten years,” said Shelley Lovell-Rees of Amherstburg, a 52-year-old teacher.

The married mother of two scratched her Instant Wild Cards ticket at the store. “I celebrated my win with the store owner,” she laughed. “And I took a selfie with the screen that said ‘Big Winner.’”

Lovell-Rees plans to share her windfall. “Now I can finally take care of my parents who have given me so much. This win isn’t just for me – it’s for my family,” she concluded.

Instant Wild Cards is available for $5 and the top prize is $100,000. Odds of winning any prize are 1 in 3.87.

The winning ticket was purchased at Simcoe Variety on Simcoe Street in Amherstburg.
