Mississauga $100K winner.

A Mississauga man is $100,000 richer after hitting the jackpot on an instant scratch ticket.

Sureshkumar Subramaniam won the top prize available on his Instant Crossword Tripler ticket, which was recently purchased for $5 at Lucky Oxalis Inc., on Burnhamthorpe Road in Mississauga.

It’s not known what the Mississauga man plans to do with his winnings as he didn’t provide OLG officials with any comments in the wake of his good fortune.

And that’s OK, say OLG officials in charge of running the various lottery games and draws. Not every winner of a big cash prize has something to say.

While most big OLG lottery winners do choose to offer public comments and reaction upon claiming their giant cheque, they’re not mandated to do so. They’re only bound by lottery rules to either have their photo taken by OLG officials or supply a photo themselves for publication.
