Betty Brewer of Brantford won the top prize of $300,000 on an instant scratch ticket.

Brewer said she’s a regular lottery player and instant games are her favourite.

“I scratched my ticket, and I was so shocked when I saw $300,000. I called my friend and told her to grab a pen and paper and write down the prize amount – I asked her to confirm what the number was, and she confirmed it was $300,000 – I was amazed by my luck,” she said, while at the OLG Prize Centre.

Brewer added, she was so happy she was shaking.

“I told my son, and he was so happy for me,” Brewer said. “He always told me that I would win one day, and I did!”

The mother and grandmother plans to invest her winnings and travel to Cuba. “I feel so happy!”

The winning ticket was purchased at Dundas Variety & Laundromat on Dundas Street in Brantford.
