Bruce Rosenberg of Burlington likes to play all lottery draws but on this one particular day, he felt something happen.

“I guess fate intervened,” explained Rosenberg on how he claimed a top prize of $250,000 with an Instant Bonus Money scratch ticket.

The 56-year-old dad said he was driving home from work when he stopped at the store to purchase the ticket.

“I went to this specific store because I was dropping my daughter off,” he recalled.

He scratched his ticket at the store and scanned it right away. “I had to do a double take,” he said. “When I realized how much I won, I felt calm.”

The next day, Rosenberg shared the news with his coworkers. “Everyone congratulated me. They were so happy for me.”

Rosenberg said he plans to invest the money and will keep playing the lottery, especially Lotto Max because of the big prizes that are offered.

“I feel very grateful,” he said.

The winning ticket was purchased at Big Bear Food Mart on Appleby Line in Burlington.
