Burnaby Woman Flying High After Scoring $100K Scratch & Win Prize

November 29, 2022


Darleen Bissonette plans to cross off a few big bucket list items after winning $100,000 from BCLC’s Fish ‘n Chips Scratch & Win game — the first being skydiving. 

The Burnaby resident was at home when she found out the good news. 

“I was running around trying to find my glasses,” she recalled. “I thought it said $1,000 and I woke up my roommate so that he could make sure it was real.”

Upon realizing her win was real, Bissonette couldn’t wait to share the news with her son.

“I called to tell him and he was really happy for me. I went to the island to celebrate with him.”

Aside from going skydiving, Bissonette looks forward to purchasing a new car with some of her prize. She also plans to spend some of it on her grandkids.

“This win will give me more free time to spend on the island with my kids and grandkids. I’ve always dreamt of spending money on them if I ever won big.” 

Bissonette purchased her ticket from the Shell on Canoe Pass Way in Tsawwassen.
