Vancouver Winner ‘Set for Life’ at the Bank


You can almost see the wheels turning in Nigel Moore’s head as he dreams about investing his $675,000 win from playing Set for Life.

“I love the excitement of Scratch & Win tickets because you never know what you’re going to get until you finish scratching,” said Moore. “Sometimes you win and sometimes you lose. I’m just so happy about my big win!”

Moore has shared the news with his fiancée and plans to celebrate with a nice dinner out.

“The feeling of winning is amazing,” said Moore. “This is a life-changing amount of money for me so I want to be responsible about what to do with it. My big plan is to invest it.”

Moore purchased the winning Scratch & Win ticket from at the Mac’s convenience store located on Williams Road in Richmond.

Every time a Scratch & Win ticket is purchased in B.C., it funds programs across the province. Learn more here. BCLC offers socially responsible gambling entertainment while generating income to benefit all British Columbians. Remember, play for fun, not to make money. For more information visit
