Dorota Langlois of Niagara Falls is $50,000 richer after winning with Instant $50K.

Langlois, who works in hospitality, plays the lottery occasionally and enjoys playing Instant games. "This is my first big win – it was just a random ticket selection at the store," she shared while at the OLG Prize Centre in Toronto to pick up her winnings.

"I was playing my ticket and didn’t really understand it at first," she continued. "I said to my husband, 'I matched a number, but I can't see!' He said 'wow' and I knew it was real,” she laughed. “I put my glasses on and I was shocked. It was crazy – I was surprised and in disbelief!"

Langlois plans to put her win toward home renovations.

"I never expected something like this," she smiled.

Instant $50K is available for $50 and the top prize is $50,000. Odds of winning any prize are 1 in 3.68. Visit the INSTANT page on for more information on this and other great games.

The winning ticket was purchased at Montrose Variety on Montrose Road in Niagara Falls.
