Meanwhile Shirley Clapham of Kirkfield claimed the $50,000 top prize in Instant Bingo, a $3 ticket.

The retired mom of two and grandmother of three checked her ticket using the OLG lottery app.

“I didn’t believe it so I scanned it a few times,” she said while at the OLG prize centre in Toronto. “I was surprised.”

The 77-year-old widow plans on purchasing a new television, investing in a Posturepedic bed and sharing her windfall with her family.

“This win feels great,” she said.

She purchased her winning ticket at Naturipe Food Market on Portage Road in Bolsover.
