A Milton grandfather is excited and happy after having won $100,000 as the top prize in Instant Cash Rush game 2292.
David Flatt says he has been a regular lottery player for decades. “This ticket was purchased for me by my daughter,” he shared while at the OLG Prize Centre in Toronto to pick up his winnings. “When I matched the number 37, I knew right away that I won something. I revealed the prize amount and the more zeroes I saw the more I started to freak out!”
David, 70, says he called his daughter right away to share the news about his win. “I felt like a kid in a candy store! This win will have a wonderful impact on my life. My wife would have loved this. I wish she were here to experience it all.”
He plans to share this win with his children and possibly purchase a new vehicle. “It’s a dream of mine to share a lottery win with my kids,” David smiled.
