Mary Rambarran’s day got a bit brighter after picking up BCLC’s Royal Riches Scratch & Win ticket at the grocery store and discovering she landed the game’s top prize of $200,000.
“It was a rainy day and I grabbed some Scratch & Win tickets to play inside,” she recalled.
Upon returning home from Save-On-Foods on Fraser Highway where she purchased her tickets, the Langley resident soon found out she was a winner after checking BCLC’s Lotto! App.
“I didn’t believe it at first and just looked at it!”
Rambarran called her daughter right away to share the news.
“She was so surprised. I had just called her a few minutes before to chat but then the power went out so during that time, I scratched my tickets and then called her back to tell her.”
On how it feels to be $200,000 richer?
“You don’t think it’s real… It’s amazing and will be very helpful for retirement. When I was younger, I always said I would buy a Porsche but I’m past that now,” she said.
