A Leamington woman is celebrating her second lottery win after winning $100,000.

Katharina Wiebe won $50,000 12 years ago playing INSTANT BINGO.

This time, she played INSTANT CROSSWORD TRIPLER.

The grandmother was at home playing her tickets when she noticed she matched five words.

“I had actually missed a letter, so I had six words,” she explained. “I turned the ticket over to read the game rules and saw I won the top prize. I couldn’t believe what I was seeing!”

Wiebe plans to renovate her kitchen and buy some new furniture.

“The rest will be invested,” she said.

She bought the ticket at Leamington Market on Erie Street.
