A Mississauga woman is celebrating a big lotto win. 

OLG says that Julita Gozum won $100,000 with Instant Bingo Multiplier (Game #3072).

Gozum, a 63-year-old dental administrator, was at home when she discovered her win.

“I had the ticket in my bag for a week before I took some time and played my ticket,” she told OLG.

“I uncovered a box and couldn’t believe my eyes! I checked and re-checked the ticket multiple times. I didn’t want to get my hopes dashed so I decided to go to the store and use the Ticket Checker. When I saw the ‘Big Winner’ message my hands started shaking!”

Gozum and her husband are planning to shop for a new car.

“I really want to prioritize helping my family and sharing some of my winnings with them. This win will have an impact on many lives. I feel so happy.” 

The winning ticket was purchased at INS Market on Bay Street in Toronto.

OLG is now accepting in-person prize claims by-appointment-only for customers with prizes of $1,000 or more who wish to claim at the OLG Prize Centre.
