Lindsay resident wins $50,000 lottery prize

A Lindsay resident has claimed a $50,000 lottery prize.

John Sloan, a 69-year-old great-grandfather, won the top prize on an Instant Bingo scratch ticket.

“I was playing my tickets at home when I scanned the ticket using the OLG App,” he said while at the OLG Prize Centre in Toronto to pick up his winnings.

“My wife didn’t believe what we were seeing. I said, ‘The app doesn’t lie!’”

John said he’s won smaller prizes in the past but nothing this big.

“It’s pretty exciting,” he said.

Sloan added that he plans to put his money away for now.
