Denielle Elliott of Port Hope is $1 million richer after winning with INSTANT ULTIMATE (Game #2123). Denielle is one of the top prize winners from the draw held on December 31, 2022.

Denielle, an occasional lottery player, says she heard an advertisement on the radio about the new ULTIMATE ticket which motivated her to purchase one. “I decided to buy one because of the great odds to win $1 million,” she shared while at the OLG Prize Centre in Toronto to pick up her winnings.

She discovered her big win while at the grocery store. “I decided to check my ticket and when I saw the Big Winner screen I was stunned – it didn’t feel real,” she said.

Denielle plans to pay off her mortgage and complete some home renovations. “I have special people in my life who will enjoy this win with me. I plan to celebrate with a girl’s trip for some fun in the sun,” she smiled.

“I don’t know what I did to deserve this blessing,” Denielle concluded.
