John Paul Marentette is planning a Florida cruise after winning the $150,000 prize while playing The Big Spin Instant game.

The 78-year-old said he does not play the lottery often, but he will more in the future.

“This is my first major win,” he said at the Ontario Lottery and Gaming Corporation’s Prize Centre in Toronto. “It feels great.”

He also plans on using winnings to pay bills, bike a motorbike, and a new air conditioner.
