Glen Newberry of Stittsville is super set for life after winning a top prize of $100,000 a year for 20 years with INSTANT SUPER SET FOR LIFE. Glen chose a one-time payment of $1,500,000.
A 32-year-old gas station attendant, Glen was out hiking one day when he stopped at a store to pick up some refreshments. “My left hand started to itch as soon as I walked into the store,” he shared, while at the OLG Prize Centre in Toronto to pick up his cheque. I took that as a good omen so I decided to pick up some INSTANT tickets. The cashier at the store picked this ticket for me.”
It wasn’t until the next day while at home drinking his morning coffee that Glen discovered his win. “I won in the first game box, but it wasn’t until I had uncovered the seventh game that I accepted that I won. I thought ‘No way, I must be dreaming,’” he laughed.
When Glen told his boss, he didn’t believe him! “I had to show him the ticket and he was shocked! He said to me, ‘Now you’re set for life’, and I said, ‘Actually, I’m SUPER SET FOR LIFE,’” he recalled. Glen has always dreamed of being a millionaire. “I told everyone I was going to be a millionaire, and now I am!”
Glen plans to take care of his family. “It is important for me to ensure the people I love are taken care of. I’m also going to save money to take a vacation with family and friends when the pandemic is over,” he said. The first thing Glen did was call his dad and told him to retire. “I told him I would pay off his mortgage and treat him to the classic car he’s always wanted,” he smiled.
“This is wonderful. I’m thrilled to be able to do this. This win is a turning point in my life,” Glen concluded.
SUPER SET FOR LIFE is available for $20 and the top prize is $100,000 per year for 20 years. Odds of winning any prize are 1 in 3. Visit the INSTANT page on OLG.ca for more information on this and other great games.
The winning ticket was purchased at Mac’s on Hazeldean Road in Kanata. Congratulations Ken!
