38 yr old retail worker in St. Catharines wins $250,000


A St. Catharines woman has won $250,000 in an Instant Turbo game.

Tammy Pidgeon and her husband were sitting on the porch drinking coffee and playing their INSTANT games when she discovered she was a big winner. 

She checked the ticket using the OLG Lottery App. 

"It was awesome, my husband ran to tell the kids right away!"

The 38-year-old retail worker plans to pay some bills and purchase a house with her win. 

"This gives us a chance to do so much that we've been working towards," she smiled.

The winning ticket was purchased at 7-Eleven on Hartzel Road in St. Catharines
