Bingo! Bradford couple get $250,000 richer after snap win

BINGO! Bradford’s Lino and Sarah Calicchia won a $250,000 prize with Instant Bingo Multiplier (game #3077).

The married couple say they have been playing instant tickets for decades. “It’s our first big win,” said Lino, while at the OLG Prize Center to pick up his cheque.

Sarah says when she found out about their big win, she couldn’t believe it. “I thought I won big years ago and I was wrong, so I wasn’t quick to celebrate this time,” she explained. “We double-checked using the OLG app and still couldn’t believe it. I was completely shocked. I can’t even describe it. Our kids are thrilled for us!”

“It feels good to win,” Lino said. “It feels real now!” Sarah added.

They plan to buy a cottage for their family to enjoy for generations.
