Abinesh Thiyagarajah of Woodbridge is $1 million richer after winning with INSTANT JACKPOT MULTIPLIER (Game #2058).
Abinesh said he has been a regular lottery player for the past decade. INSTANT tickets are his favourite games. “I was drawn to this ticket because of the $1 million prize,” he shared while at the OLG Prize Centre in Toronto to pick up his winnings.
The 36-year-old who works in transportation, said he played his ticket in the store when he discovered his win. “At first, I thought I won $10 – but when I did a double take, I was shocked. I turned to the cashier but couldn’t talk in that moment. I pointed at the ticket and the clerk was so excited for me,” he said. “He gave me a bottle of water and told me to have a seat.”
Abinesh said this win allows him to be debt-free. “I’m not very materialistic, so treating myself hasn’t come across my mind at all. But I do plan to spoil my mom and treat her to whatever she wants,” he smiled.
“I am so thankful and grateful for this blessing,” Abinesh concluded.
