Lucky in Lucknow: Woman wins $250K Lotto prize

Lucknow, Ont. A Lucknow, Ont. grandmother claims she went numb after realizing that she had won $250,000 for solving an instant crossword puzzle.

Sheila Zsiga claims she is a regular player of the lottery, and adds,

I have been playing lottery since I was 18 years old.

This is my biggest win, though I won on POKERLOTTO in May 2021.

The 58-year old retired woman said she believed she had made a mistake playing her ticket.

She said,

As I was playing I knew that I had won $10. Next thing I knew, I had won $100,000.

I checked my ticket with the OLG App to confirm that I won, and was completely numb! My husband immediately told me and we went to the store in order to verify it.

Sheila, a grandmother and mother, plans to share her win.

I will pay my bills, buy a new car and save money for a trip to Las Vegas once it’s safe.

The winning ticket was purchased from Ultramar, Campbell Street, Lucknow.
