Vanderhoof’s Patricia Winch was all smiles this week when she won $50,000 from a Bingo Blast Scratch & Win ticket.
Winch purchased her ticket at the 7-Eleven on Burrard Avenue and was at home when she scratched her ticket, as per a press release from the British Columbia Lottery Corporation (BCLC).
“I noticed that I only needed one more number to win the prize. When I scratched the next number, my numbers came up! It took a moment to sink in,” Winch said.
“I think my daughters were more excited than I was when I told them.”
She claimed her prize through BCLC’s alternate prize-claim process.
As travelling isn’t much of an option right now with COVID-19 guidelines, Winch said she is going to use the money to purchase a few pieces of furniture.
