Romain Malinoski of Orangeville won a $75,000 prize with INSTANT POKER (Game #2261).

The winning ticket was purchased at Circle K on First Street in Orangeville.

Romain says he plays the lottery all the time.

“It’s my thing – I love the $5 games,” he shared while at the OLG Prize Centre in Toronto to pick up his winnings.

The 55-year-old father of one was relaxing in his garage and playing his ticket when he discovered his win. “I thought I won $1,000 or $5,000 at first. I checked it using the OLG App and I couldn’t believe it!”

Romain told his wife and son the next morning. “My son thought I was joking,” he laughed. 

Romain plans to go to Hawaii with his wife.
