They were the among the words he revealed on an Instant Crossword Deluxe scratch ticket to win a $250,000 top prize.

Remy, 27, thought he had won just $100, but he had missed a couple of letters, “I scanned my ticket on the OLG Lottery App and saw that the prize amount was $250,000. I screamed for my mom … she didn’t believe me until she saw the message on the app.”
