CORNWALL – Sean Finnerty of Cornwall is $75,000 richer after winning with Instant Scrabble.
Sean, a 42-year-old sand blaster, discovered his win while at home. “My sister checked my ticket,” he shared, while at the OLG Prize Centre in Toronto to pick up his cheque. “It takes a lot to get me excited. My sister said, ‘you won $75,000!’ And I said, ‘cool,’” he smiled.
The father of one is planning to buy a house with his winnings.
“This feels good,” he concluded.
The winning ticket was purchased at Mac’s on Pitt Street in Cornwall.
The OLG Prize Centre in Toronto has resumed in-person prize claims for winning-ticket holders of $50,000 or more by-appointment only. To best protect customers and staff, OLG has put in place appropriate health and safety protocols in accordance with guidelines from public health officials, which include physical distancing measures, the mandatory use of personal protective equipment (PPE) and the pre-screening of visitors before granting entry. Currently, OLG is reaching out to major prize winners ($50,000+) who have been unable to claim their prizes due to COVID-19 to schedule appointments for in-person prize claims. Future announcements will be made as to when OLG will open appointments to others wishing to claim their prize in-person at the Prize Centre.
