CORNWALL – A Cornwall man scratched his way to 75,000 extra dollars on an instant scratch ticket recently.

Sean Finnerty, 42, won on an Instant Scrabble ticket while at home.

“My sister checked my ticket,” he shared with lottery officials while picking up his prize in Toronto. “It takes a lot to get me excited. My sister said, ‘you won $75,000!’ And I said, ‘cool,’” he smiled.

The father of one, who is a sand blaster, plans to use the winnings to buy a house.

The ticket was sold at the Mac’s on Pitt Street.
