An Oshawa woman has won the top prize on an instant lottery scratch ticket.

Robyn Wallace, 75, recently won $250,000 on an Instant Crossword Deluxe game.

“I knew the ticket was a winner, but I thought the win was a smaller amount,” she says, while at the OLG Prize Centre in Toronto to claim her prize.

The married retiree says she is not one to show emotion.

“I was taken aback when I found out about this win,” she says. “But I am very happy about this situation. This will make my life more fun,” she adds, noting she plans to share her joy and excitement with her partner.

The winning ticket was purchased at Stop and Shop on Wentworth Street in Oshawa.
