Blenheim woman wins $50,000

Deanna Rutherford of Blenheim is $50,000 richer after winning the lottery.

Rutherford, a 34-year old self-employed woman, discovered her win on the Instant Bingo Doubler game while with friends

“I got three lines right away and thought that this was a lucky ticket,” Rutherford said in a media release.

“When I uncovered the fourth line I looked at my friends and told them that someone needs to download the OLG Lottery App on their phone.”

Rutherford said she plans to renovate her home, pay off some bills and fix her car.

“This is great – it’s surreal,” she added.

“I’m still numb. I don’t think it will sink in until I’m actually using the money as planned.”

Instant Bingo Doubler is available for $5 a play and the top prize is $100,000.

Odds of winning any prize are 1 in 3.86.

The winning ticket was purchased at Esso on the Run on Bloomfield Road in Chatham.
