Darlene Harris of Cambridge.

Darlene Harris of Cambridge is $75,000 richer after winning the top prize with Instant Winner’s Circle.

Harris, an automotive factory worker, says she’s been playing the lottery for 30 years. “I like playing Instant games,” she shared while at the OLG Prize Centre in Toronto to collect her winnings.

The 56-year-old was playing her ticket at home when she noticed she had uncovered four numbers in the middle of the game. 

"I called my mom over to look at the ticket and kept asking, 'Did I win $75,000?' and she said, 'I'm pretty sure you did!' I was completely ecstatic!"

Harris plans to pay some bills and save her win. 

"I'm very happy. This is a blessing,” she concluded.

The winning ticket was purchased at Little Short Store on Jamieson Parkway in Cambridge.
