“This is the first time I’ve won big,” shared Claudia, while at the OLG Prize Centre in Toronto to pick up her cheque.


The 72-year-old retired crossing guard checked her ticket while at the store. “I originally thought I won $100,” she laughed. “I was very shocked!”


“My husband told me I would win one day – he passed away two years ago and he,” Claudia smiled. “I am overwhelmed.”


Claudia plans to go on a vacation with her two daughters.
