Donald Bilton and Tina Bilton of Penetanguishene are $100,000 richer after winning with Instant Power 5s (Game #2383).

The married couple says this is their first major win and they’ve been playing the lottery together weekly since 1988.

“This was a new ticket, so we wanted to try it,” shared Tina while at the OLG Prize Centre in Toronto to collect their windfall.

“I was scratching the ticket and when I saw all the numbers come up, I said to Donald, ‘We won $100,000,’” Tina smiled.

“I didn’t believe her at all. I thought there was no way,” Donald added.

“We get to enjoy life a little bit more now with this win,” Tina said.

They plan to pay some bills with their windfall.
