Katharina Wiebe of Leamington won a $100,000 top prize with Instant Crossword Tripler (Game #2259).

Wiebe says she has been a regular lottery player for 30 years. “Instant games are my favourite,” she shared while at the OLG Prize Centre in Toronto to pick up her winnings. “I also won $50,000 on Instant Bingo 12 years ago!”

Wiebe, a mother and grandmother, was at home playing her tickets when she noticed she matched five words. “I had actually missed a letter, so I had six words. I turned the ticket over to read the game rules and saw I won the top prize,” she smiled. “I couldn’t believe what I was seeing!”

She told her husband about her big win right away. “He was so excited! It felt good to tell him and see his reaction.”  She plans to put her win toward a kitchen renovation and some new furniture. “The rest will be invested,” she concluded.

Instant Crossword Tripler is available for $5 a play and the top prize is $100,000. Odds of winning any prize are 1 in 3.61.
