Oakville man celebrating big lottery win after clerk gave his reaction away
Melvin Houston of Oakville has just won $500,000 with the new $5 Instant Plinko.
"I loved PLINKO from the Price is Right, so I've been playing this game since it's come out!" Houston told OLG while at the prize centre in Toronto.
"I played my ticket while in the store and when I handed it to the clerk, her reaction made me realize I won big.”
Houston shared the good news about his win with his family right away according to OLG.
"Everyone was so happy - they were in as much disbelief as I was! Everyone I love will get some of this win. I want to be sure to share this amazing windfall with the people most important to me. I'll help my kids and have plenty left over to help me buy a house," Houston concluded.
