A Brampton mom is planning some home renos and a trip after a $50,000 windfall.

David said she was playing her Instant High Roller ticket and when she saw $50,000, she stopped scratching and started celebrating.

“I couldn’t believe it – I started yelling and crying,” David said while picking up her winnings at the OLG Prize Centre in Toronto. “I was so shocked to see that I matched that number.”

“My daughter heard me crying and came downstairs right away because she thought something bad happened,” David said.

David says the prize “feels like a big blessing,” and she plans to pay off bills, complete home improvements and take a trip with her winnings.
