Robert Garland of Barrie is excited after winning a $100,000 top prize with Instant Holiday Winnings (game #2164).

"This feels great," smiled Robert, a transit driver, while at the OLG Prize Centre to pick up his cheque.

"I scratched the ticket at the store, and then scanned it to double check I had won," said the 54-year old married father of two.

This is a first-time major win for Robert.
