A local lottery winner Gayle Levesque of Niagara Falls is $100,000 richer after winning with Instant Gold Pursuit but she couldn’t believe it at first.

Gayle, who works as a medical assistant, says she is not a regular lottery player and this ticket was a birthday gift from her husband. “I was laying in bed one morning while playing my ticket and checked it on the OLG app. I heard the winning tune and thought for sure something was wrong. I thought it was a mistake!”

“When I showed my husband, his jaw dropped,” Gayle shared while at the OLG Prize Centre in Toronto to pick up her winnings. “He thought I was pranking him at first!”

The 55-year-old says she has a lot of plans for her win. “I will pay off some bills, share some with my children and put some aside for the future. My husband and I will celebrate by taking a cruise together,” she concluded.

Instant Gold Pursuit is available for $25 and the top prize is $100,000. Odds of winning any prize are 1 in 3.19. Visit the Instant page on OLG.ca for more information on this and other great games.

The winning ticket was purchased at Shoppers Drug Mart on Montrose Road in Niagara Falls.
