A South Woodslee Couple is $100,000 richer after winning big on an OLG Instant ticket.

The Ontario Lottery and Gaming Corporation says Donald and Tracey Dupuis of South Woodslee won the $100,000 with Instant Sizzling 5s (Game #2126).

The couple, married parents of two and grandparents of three, discovered their win on April 1st and were recently able to claim their prize at the OLG Prize Centre in Toronto.

“We called our son and daughter-in-law who put us on speaker phone and we told them about the win,” said Donald Dupuis. “Immediately, our daughter-in-law said, ‘No way, it’s April Fool’s Day!’”

“We had to take a picture to send to them so they would believe us,” Tracey Dupuis said.

The couple plans to pay off their motorhome and enjoy their retirement.

“We’ll also share with the kids. I want to make sure my loved ones are taken care of,” said Tracey.

Instant Sizzling 5s was a $5 game from the OLG with a top prize of $100,000 and odds of winning any prize of 1 in 3.91, according to the OLG.

The winning ticket was purchased at One Stop Video & Convenience on Notre Dame Street in Belle River.

The OLG says their Prize Centre in Toronto has resumed in-person prize claims for winning ticket holders of $50,000 or more, by appointment only.
