Orangeville woman goes all in, wins on Poker Lotto game
Going all in paid off for one Orangeville woman. Jennifer Schlosser of Orangeville played Poker Lotto All In on Dec. 23, 2016 and picked up a jackpot worth $158,415.
She also won $5,000 on the instant portion of her Poker Lotto play and brought her total winnings to $163,415. “I was at the store to pick up some milk when I decided to grab a Poker Lotto All In ticket,” Schlosser said. “There were so many numbers on the screen, I couldn’t even read them. I started screaming!”
The winning ticket was purchased at Mac’s on Town Line in Orangeville. The 41-year-old mother of two says she ran into a former colleague at the store. “I kept running back and forth between the retailer and my former colleague and I kept hugging him,” she said. “Next, I called my boyfriend and said, ‘I think you need to get over here now.’”
Plans are already underway for Schlosser’s big win. “I plan to pay off everything including my car,” she said. “The rest of the money will go towards a down payment on a house. This win gives me the freedom to enjoy life.
Now I can also visit my daughter in Newfoundland. This win makes life more comfortable.”
