Dale Buckner scared his friend, as he started screaming when he learned he won $675,000 playing Set for Life.
“I was doing some work at my friend’s house outside and realized I won, so I started screaming,” Buckner recalled of the moment he learned he won Set for Life’s top prize. “My friend thought I was hurt and came out to see what happened – I told him I won.”
The Maple Ridge resident plans on purchasing an excavator and visiting Mexico with his winnings.
Buckner purchased and validated his winning ticket at Webster’s Corner Store on Dewdney Trunk Road in Maple Ridge.
On how it feels to win?
