In Local

Karen Martin of Brighton is $100,000 richer after winning with INSTANT GOLD PURSUIT (Game #2411).

Karen, who works as a dental assistant, says she usually plays INSTANT games and she purchased this ticket on Valentines Day. “I stopped to pick up a Diet Pepsi and ended up with $100,000,” she shared while at the OLG Prize Centre in Toronto.

The 62-year-old discovered her win using the OLG App and couldn’t believe she was a winner. “I told my husband, daughter and son in law right away,” Karen smiled. “My family was very excited for me and wanted to see the validation screen,” she laughed.

She is planning a vacation somewhere to celebrate her win with her family.

“I feel very excited and happy,” she continued. “It’s an experience you can’t put into words.”

INSTANT GOLD PURSUIT is available for $25 and the top prize is $100,000. Odds of winning any prize are 1 in 3.19. Visit the INSTANT page on for more information on this and other great games.

The winning ticket was purchased at Mac’s on Elizabeth Street in Brighton.
