Trevor Van Every of Ohsweken won $100,000 with INSTANT POWER UP.

Van Every, a construction worker, said he enjoys playing many different types of lottery games.

“I find it to be a relaxing thing to do after work,” he shared, while at the OLG Prize Centre in Toronto to claim his winnings.

After picking up his kids from school, the 57-year-old stopped at the gas station and checked his ticket. That’s when he discovered he was a big winner.

“I got back to the car and told my kids I won, but they didn’t believe me!” he recalled.

Van Every then picked up his wife and revealed the news.

“She was also in disbelief and asked to see the ticket. After I showed her that it was real, she was so happy for me,” Van Every said.

Van Every has made some exciting plans to celebrate his win.

“My family and I race 4×4’s,” he said. “We hope to go on a trip to ride them together.”

With this windfall, Trevor will also manage his finances. “This win will make everything easier,” he concluded.

The winning ticket was purchased at Oasis Gas & Variety on Fourth Line in Ohsweken.
