TORONTO, ON – Richard Szajek of Guelph is $250,000 richer after winning with INSTANT 25X MULTIPLIER (Game #2321).

Richard, an 18-year-old student, said he started playing the lottery when he turned 18, which was only a month ago. “I was playing my ticket in my car and when I saw I won $250,000 I thought it couldn’t be real. I was very shocked!” he shared while at the OLG Prize Centre in Toronto to pick up his winnings. “I scanned it using the OLG App a few times to make sure it was real. I was in disbelief.”

He plans to use his winnings to pay off his student loans and purchase a house. “As an 18 year old, I feel like my future is a lot brighter!” he smiled.

INSTANT 25X MULTIPLIER is available for $10 and the top prize is $250,000. 

The winning ticket was purchased at Zehrs on Kortright Road in Guelph.
