Imre Jr. Szilvasi of Loretto is celebrating after winning a $100,000 top prize with INSTANT CROSSWORD TRIPLER (Game #3300).

Imre says he has been playing INSTANT tickets for two years and CROSSWORD TRIPLER is his favourite game. “I went to the store to buy my tickets and played it in the car. I noticed I had all the words and thought I won $20 at first. I went back in the store to check my ticket and realized I won $100,000. Other people in the store were hugging me and cheering for me,” he shared while at the OLG Prize Centre in Toronto to pick up his winnings.

Imre, who just turned 81, says when he told his wife about the big win, she was so excited she almost fell over. “She had to hold onto the wall,” he laughed.

“I feel like I will enjoy life a lot more. We will take a trip to Europe and put the rest in our savings,” Imre concluded.

INSTANT CROSSWORD TRIPLER is available for $5 a play and the top prize is $100,000. Odds of winning any prize are 1 in 3.81.
