Heinz Burki is feeling a whirlwind of emotions after discovering he won the top prize of $75,000 from BCLC’s Deluxe Crossword Scratch & Win game.
The Victoria resident purchased the ticket from the Save-On-Foods on Foul Bay Road and was at home when he discovered the unexpected news.
“I thought I had won $10,000,” he recalled. “I told my wife we get to go on a trip and then I realized I forgot to scratch a letter off, and I actually won $75,000!”
Burki plans to share some of the winnings with his daughter and looks forward to doing some travelling with his wife.
