“What the Heck?”: Salmon Arm Resident at a Loss for Words After $50K Scratch & Win Prize

February 13, 2023


Richard Lambert of Salmon Arm was at a loss for words upon realizing he scored the top prize of $50,000 playing BCLC’s Super Crossword Scratch & Win ticket.

“I was at home and thought, ‘what the heck?’” he recalled. “I asked to see my brother’s phone so I could check the ticket to make sure.”

On how it feels to win?

“I don’t have words, just laughter.”

Lambert plans to make a few “practical purchases” with his prize in addition to saving a portion. He purchased his ticket from the Salmon Arm Chevron at 101 Trans-Canada Highway.
