UTTERSON — Conroy Bissonette had to do a double-take after looking at his lotto ticket.
“I played my ticket in my car and when I saw I won I couldn’t believe it.
“Tears started running down my cheeks and I kept wondering if it was real,” he said after picking up the $100,000 Instant 21 prize cheque at the OLG Prize Centre in Toronto recently.
“I double checked it using the OLG App and didn’t go back into the store, because I’m sure my legs didn’t work,” he said in an OLG release Friday.
The 52-year-old father said he messaged his wife right away.
“She called me when she saw my note and then asked if I was OK to drive home,” he said with a laugh.
Bissonette plans to pay some bills and treat his wife to a sauna.
“I’m looking forward to enjoying that in the cold Muskoka winters!”
The winning ticket was purchased at Circle K on Taylor Road in Bracebridge.
