A 24-year-old retail worker in Niagara has a new lucky number.

Abigail Caporuscio of St. Catharines is celebrating after winning a $77,777 top prize with Instant Lucky 7.

She says she is not a regular lottery player and only buys tickets on occasion when they catch her eye.

“I was at a restaurant with my family when I played my ticket,” she shared while at the OLG Prize Centre in Toronto to pick up her winnings. 

“I said I think I won, and my mom thought it was a few dollars. I said, no – I think I won the big prize and used the OLG app to check. I saw the prize and my family was thrilled for me!”

“I feel good!” she said. “I was in disbelief after the initial shock. This is wonderful!”

 She plans to invest her winnings and save for a house.

The winning ticket was purchased at Husky Travel Centre on York Road in Niagara-on-the-Lake.
