Phreddy Niven will soon be jetting off to the island of Maui after discovering he won the top prize of $50,000 playing BCLC’s Super Crossword Scratch & Win game.
Niven was off to grab a coffee when he decided to purchase a ticket while out and about — a decision he’s glad he made.
“I was at home when I found out I won,” Niven recalled. “The first thing that crossed my mind was that I didn’t do it right! I thought I better check it again.”
The Duncan resident purchased his ticket from the Save-On-Foods on Trans Canada Highway in Duncan and says he is still in disbelief of his win. He looks forward to his upcoming Hawaiian vacation, thanks to his prize.
