Barrie resident wins big bucks playing Instant Crossword

Train trip to the Rockies on the to-do list after big win

News release from OLG

Jack Desrocher of Barrie is celebrating after winning a $50,000 top prize with Instant Crossword.

Jack, a father and grandfather, said he’s been playing the lottery for 40 years and his favourite game is CROSSWORD. “I was playing my ticket and thought I must have won $5,000, but when I brought it to the store, I was shocked to see $50,000 – I couldn’t believe it,” he shared while at the OLG Prize Centre in Toronto to pick up his winnings. “It really put a smile on my face!”

Jack said his friends at the senior’s centre were quite happy for him and so was his family. “It feels good. This is nice to have for all the things I wouldn’t normally do.”

“I might take a train trip out west to the Rockies – first class of course. And I will share some with my kids and grandkids,” he concluded.

The winning ticket was purchased at Zehrs on Yonge Street in Barrie.
