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.
