A Milton mom is latest winner of an OLG jackpot.

Cindy Kriak of Campbellville is $75,000 richer after winning with Instant Silver Bells.

“I’ve been playing on and off for about 35 years,” said the warehouse associate, who confirmed this is her first major win.

“I was playing my ticket and when I uncovered the $75,000, I had to call my daughter to come over and double check. She told me, ‘Yes, mom. It’s correct!’ She was so happy for me!'”

She plans to pay some bills with her winnings.

“It’s unbelievable. I want to stay grounded and enjoy the win.”

The winning ticket was purchased at Petro Canada on Hwy. 6 in Hamilton.
