“Is This Real?”: Vancouverite $100K Richer from Scratch & Win Prize

May 29, 2023


Dorin Ranisav had a hard time containing his excitement (literally) after discovering he scored the top prize of $100,000 from BCLC’s 777 Scratch & Win game.

“I started shaking and I threw up at work because of my excitement,” recalled Ranisav.

The Vancouver resident purchased and checked the ticket at Safeway on Davie Street and couldn’t believe what he saw.

“I thought, ‘What is going on, is this real?’”

Ranisav first shared the news with his wife, who responded with “shut up” as she was in so much shock.

To celebrate his win, Ranisav treated his loved ones to a celebratory dinner out and plans to purchase a bigger vehicle to take on road trips across B.C. with his family.

“I don’t have the words,” he said of how it feels to win.
