Kelowna man enjoying ‘surreal’ Set for Life win


Michael Walker won $675,000 playing Set for Life and remains in complete disbelief.

“This feels really surreal,” exclaimed Walker. “I didn’t believe it at first when I saw three ‘Cash for Life’ symbols on the ticket!”

As his win starts to sink in, Walker is slowly deciding how he’s going to spend his winnings.

“First I’m going to take my girlfriend on a weekend getaway,” smiled Walker. “The other thing I’m going to do is help my mom retire.”

The winning Set for Life ticket was purchased at Shoppers Drug Mart on Highway 33 in Kelowna.

Every time a Scratch & Win ticket is purchased in B.C., it funds programs across the province. Learn more here.
