Southampton resident is an instant winner

A Southampton resident is a little richer after winning a $100,000 prize with Instant Crossword Extreme.

Alexander Cziraki says that he is a regular lottery player. “My favourite games are the $5 CROSSWORDS.”

The 28-year-old delivery driver checked his ticket while at the store. “I saw Big Winner – $100,000 and I was in disbelief! I had to scan it a few times before it started to sink in!”

“I called my family to share my good news and they thought I was pulling a prank. I think they’ll still feel that way until they see for themselves,” he smiled.

Alexander has no plans for his windfall yet. “I’ll probably save it for my future.”

The winning ticket was purchased at Esso on West Street in Simcoe.
