Gerald Coleman of Fort Erie will have $50,000 extra bucks to spend on Christmas this year.

The news of the big win hit him when he brought in his winning Instant Crossword ticket expecting a $100 payout but was handed a $50,000 slip instead!

Coleman says he’ll be investing most of his money, but will splurge a little to go golfing down south.

The winning ticket was purchased at Lucky 7 on Phipps Street in Fort Erie.
