Christmas has come early for a very lucky Mississauga woman and a group of fortunate Mississauga workers.

OLG recently announced that 35-year-old Erica Gray, a financial services worker, is celebrating after winning a $250,000 top prize with Instant 24 Days To Celebrate (Game #2117).

“After scanning my ticket, I thought I won big but I had to scan it to be sure,” Gray told OLG at the OLG Prize Centre.

Gray told OLG she was shocked when her win was confirmed.

“I was numb. I still don’t believe it!”

Gray plans on putting her winnings towards a down payment on a house.

“A win like this can change everything in a minute,” she told OLG.

Instant 24 Days To Celebrate is available for $20 a play and the top prize is $250,000. Odds of winning any prize are 1 in 2.99.

The winning ticket was purchased at N.E. Mart on William O’Connell Boulevard in Burlington.

In other lotto news, two Mississauga residents are a little bit richer following a group lotto win.
