Robert Dagenais of Chelmsford is $100,000 richer after winning with Instant Boom Multiplier.
Robert, 56, uncovered his ticket to see that he had won.
“I thought, boom boom,” he laughed, while at the OLG Prize Centre in Toronto to pick up his cheque. “I went back to the retailer the next day to show the clerks – they were so happy for me,” he shared.
Robert texted his wife to tell her the good news.
“She was half asleep and thought I said $100, so she went back to sleep. She was thrilled when she found out how much I really won,” he said.
The truck driver has already purchased a new truck. He is also planning to get a small fishing boat and a nice comfortable bed. The rest will go towards retirement.
“It feels great. It’s a wonderful cushion to have in our bank. We can take a breather from the daily grind,” said Robert.
The winning ticket was purchased at Pioneer Snack Express on Highway 144 in Chelmsford.
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. In the coming weeks, OLG will open appointments to anyone wishing to claim their prize in-person at the Prize Centre.
