A pair of Brampton business partners are sharing in a $100,000 lottery prize.

Muhammad Hosein and Fiaz Khan got to go down to the Ontario Lottery Corporation headquarters and drop a real chip on the PLINKO board to earn their cash.

“We don’t normally play the lottery in a group,” Hosein. “This is our first big win!”

The pair qualified by playing a $5 Instant PLINKO card (game #2215) recently purchased at a PetroCanada gas station located on Mississauga Rd.

They played their ticket right in the kiosk and were surprised that they came out winners

“I couldn’t believe it,” Hosein said. “I was shocked! We were both so excited!”

The partners said they don’t have any big plans for their windfall yet. “We will pay some bills and save it,” Hosein said.

The $5 Instant PLINKO game combines scratch play with prizes revealed in-store by an animated chip drop on the lottery terminal screen and potentially, the chance to drop a chip on a real PLINKO Board at the OLG Prize Centre in Toronto.
