A Windsor woman is $100,000 richer after winning on an instant crossword ticket.

The Ontario Lottery and Gaming Corporation says Lucille Soulliere of Windsor revealed words including “dozen, lease and spa” on an Instant Crossword Tripler game to claim the $100,000 top prize.

They say Soulliere, a 74-year old married retired automotive assembler, uncovered her win at home while her husband, who wasn’t feeling well, was resting.

“I woke my husband up and asked him to check the ticket for me – but he looked at me like I was crazy so I told him to go back to sleep, and then I went to the store to validate my ticket,” she said.

The OLG says Soulliere scanned her ticket several times using the ticket checker at the store before she brought it to the clerk to scan at the lottery terminal.

“Another customer said, ‘I think you won $100,’ and I said, ‘I think it’s a little more than that,’” she said.

Soulliere, who is both a mother and grandmother, plans to put some of her winnings aside for a vacation to relax for a couple of weeks. She says she also plans to pay her bills and enjoy debt-free living, which she says is ‘the best thing in the world.’

“I feel good. Having never won before, it’s hard to accept, but I feel very fortunate,” she said.

The winning ticket was purchased at Stop 42 on County Road 42 in Windsor.
