Second prize has delivered $50,000 to a Brampton lottery player.

Vaishali Ramdharry claimed the prize recently by playing in the January 16 draw of Ontario 49.

Ramdharry, 36, said she is a weekly lottery player. “I used the OLG Lottery App to check my tickets. I had a few smaller wins, but when I got to my ONTARIO 49 ticket, I couldn’t believe my eyes! I checked it several times and then thanked God!”

She said once she found out she was a winner, she had to wake up her husband to tell him the good news.

“He was very happy and excited! And turns out he is a lottery expert and knew what our next steps were to validate the ticket,” she laughed.

Ramdharry said she plans to save her winnings for a buffer for emergencies. “This feels amazing – I just wish I could take my children on a trip to celebrate!”

The winning ticket was purchased at Circle K on Balmoral Dr. in Brampton.
