Congratulations to Scott Feaver of Schomberg and Linda Gerrits of Amaranth, the latest winners of $1,000 a week for life with Instant Cash for Life.
“I purchased a few Instant Cash for Life tickets and forgot about them for about a week,” shared Linda while at the OLG Prize Centre in Toronto where the two colleagues picked up their winnings. “When I found them again a week later, I gave one of the tickets to my friend and colleague Scott because it was his birthday. Wouldn’t you know it, the ticket I gave him was a big winner!”
Scott describes the moment he realized he had a winning ticket. “I just stared at it. I was a little confused because I thought it was a prank since we are friends.”
Linda continued: “I didn’t believe it either thinking it had to be a joke.”
The pair headed to the store to check their ticket. “We needed to know for sure. We didn’t even use the ticket checker, instead handing it over to the retailer for validation. The terminal froze and OLG called the store to speak with us. We’ve been friends and co-workers for years. Sharing this win is pretty cool.”
Plans are under way for the windfall. “First thing I want to do is get rid of my glasses,” said Linda. “Laser surgery is on the horizon for me. Then I want to take a trip to see my daughter in England and I would love to do that with my sister. I would also love to take care of hockey and dance classes for my grandkids.”
Scott, meanwhile, also has plans for his portion of the win. “I have my eye on a specific motorcycle and I am going for it. I already have a bike so now I will have a small collection. My daughter’s post-secondary education will be covered now,” concluded Scott.
The winning ticket was purchased at Hasty Market on County Road 50 in Alliston.
