Penetanguishene Resident Wins $100,000 With Instant Crossword


Kenneth Pilon of Penetanguishene is celebrating after winning a $100,000 top prize with INSTANT CROSSWORD TRIPLER.

Kenneth, a 67-year-old retiree, said his ticket was a birthday gift from his wife. “After playing my ticket, I didn’t think I won. My wife and I both scanned the ticket using the OLG App on our phones to be sure,” he shared while at the OLG Prize Centre in Toronto to pick up his winnings.

Kenneth and his wife called their children right away to share the good news. “Our daughter couldn’t believe it and came to see us right away!”

He plans to pay some bills and already bought a plane ticket for his son. “I can’t wait to see our grandchild,” he smiled.
