A Whitby man is planning his retirement now that he’s won $1 million on an Instant Ultimate scratcher ticket.

Feyazuddin Mohammed, a public sector worker, picked up a ticket at Friendly Variety & Videos on Garrard Road in Whitby and could already tell he had a good feeling about it.

“I had a feeling I was a winner,” he told the OLG, “As I was scratching my ticket, I told my wife, ‘This feels like a winner,’ and when I checked it using the OLG App after the draw, I froze when I saw $1 million appear on the screen. My wife and I were holding each other and jumping with joy.”

Mohammed plans to pay some bills, invest, and plan for retirement. The good feeling is still there as Mohammed said, “I feel honoured to receive such a rare experience. I feel a lot of gratitude.”
