BINGO! A group of three from York Region won a $100,000 prize with INSTANT BINGO DOUBLER (Game #2288).

The group members are:

  • Donna Glionna of Richmond Hill
  • Sonja Glionna of Richmond Hill
  • Stephen Glionna of Newmarket

The mother, daughter, and son trio said they have been playing the lottery together for a decade. Sonja said she is the one who purchased the tickets for the group that day. “I played the tickets and initially I thought we won $15 – I used the OLG App to check it and $100,000 appeared! I couldn’t believe it,” shared Sonja while at the OLG Prize Centre in Toronto.

Sonja called Stephen first and told him to listen to the music as she scanned the ticket on the OLG App again.  “I was so happy to hear the joy in my mom’s voice – it makes me so happy to see my mom like this,” said Stephen.

“I was very happy, but calm when my mom told me. I wish everyone had a mom like ours – the joy and excitement in her voice was enough,” smiled Donna.

Sonja, Donna and Stephen haven’t made plans for their win yet.

“The feeling is just extreme excitement!” concluded Sonja.
