A Guelph man and his Waterloo brother are the latest winners of the top prize in the Ontario Lottery and Gaming Commission’s Instant Scrabble game.
Christopher Lesperance of Guelph and brother Stephen are sharing the $75,000 prize.
“When I first scanned the ticket, I thought it was worth $25,000 so I called my wife over to the machine to double check. When she scanned it, we realized it was a $75,000 winning ticket,” Christopher said in a news release.
“That same night I called Stephen to tell him the good news.”
The brothers both plan to use the money to pay off their mortgages, do some renovations and take a trip, the release said. The winning ticket was purchased at Shoppers Drug Mart on Albert Street in Waterloo.
