A college student is celebrating a top prize lotto win, OLG announced this morning.

A hearty congratulations to Jessica Laikram of Brampton, a first year college student who has won $75,000 with Instant Roulette!

I like to play all the Instant games but with Instant Roulette I always seemed to win some small prizes so I kept picking up a ticket here or there,” said Laikram “And then it happened!” 

The college student hopes to work in law enforcement and plans to use her winnings for tuition, books and living expenses. “Right away though, I’m planning on celebrating with the love of my life - I’m taking my boyfriend out to dinner.” 

Jessica scratched her winning ticket while at the Hasty Market on McLaughlin, where she purchased her winning ticket, with her boyfriend. “I was so shocked. We immediately ran out of the store to show the ticket to my brother and his girlfriend. Everyone was congratulating me!” 

Jessica’s parents were in complete disbelief when she shared her good news with them. “They were incredibly happy for me but kept urging me to check my ticket again and again,” said Jessica. 

Instant Roulette is $3 a play and the top prize is $75,000, which Jessica won. Odds of winning a prize are 1 in 3.66.
