Kulvinder Bains is feeling nothing short of fantastic upon finding out she scored the top prize of $50,000 from a BC Mountains Scratch & Win ticket. 

The Victoria resident purchased the ticket from Pharmasave on Royal Oak Drive and was at home when she realized she won.

“I didn’t really believe it at first,” she recalled. “I was in disbelief!”

Bains immediately shared the news with her daughter, who was also ecstatic upon finding out. 

“I think she was more excited than I was,” Bains exclaimed.

Bains plans to put her prize towards a new car and says “it feels fantastic” to be a winner.
