It was more than just a good hair day for Stephen Tom after he won $100,000 playing his 5X the Money Scratch & Win ticket upon finishing up at the hairdresser.
“I was at the kitchen counter when I saw the ticket was a winner and I didn’t believe it,” he exclaimed. “I scanned it on my phone and showed my wife. We both couldn’t believe it.”
Tom enjoys driving around to different beaches in his free time, and looks forward to taking a tropical island vacation thanks to his windfall.
“My family has always wanted to go to Hawaii or New Zealand where there are a lot of beaches,” he said.
In addition to a vacation, Tom hopes to perhaps purchase a bigger home.
The Esquimalt resident purchased his ticket from Thrifty Foods on Admirals Road.
