Vincent White says he’s always thought about this moment–and now it has happened.

The 65-year-old retired carpenter from Mississauga is $100,000 richer after winning the top prize recently on an Instant Blackjack Casino ticket.

White, a father of two and grandfather of three, said he checked his ticket at the store when he discovered he was a big winner.

“I was excited and overwhelmed. My wife was with me and didn’t believe it at first,” White told OLG officials when collecting his winnings. “I’ve always thought about this moment.”

White says he plans to put his winnings toward a new house.

The winning ticket was purchased at Evy’s Variety, on Lakeshore Rd. in Mississauga.
