Dreams really do come true for a Brampton man who just won $25,000 after having a vision of a huge lottery win.

Lemore Morrison is a 34-year-old from Brampton who says he has been playing the lottery for more than a decade. Morrison says he had a dream a few weeks back that he’d won a $1 million dollar prize, so he decided to try his luck with a lottery ticket.

The Brampton man’s hunch was at least half right, winning the top $250,000 prize in the Instant Diamond Club game. Lemore says he and his wife were both in shock when they discovered his big win.

“I swear we checked the ticket 10 times before believing it was real,” he said while picking up his winnings at the OLG Prize Centre in Toronto. “I was calm but excited.”

Instant Diamond Club is available for $20 with a jackpot of $250,000. The OLG says the odds of winning any prize are 1 in 3.64.

OLG supports safe play and wants to keep the fun in the game. That’s why OLG is proud to be a leader in promoting responsible gambling with our globally recognized PlaySmart program.

The winning ticket was purchased at Circle K on Peter Robertson Boulevard in Brampton.
