Cassidy Sparling purchased her first lottery ticket, a Mega Scratch & Win, on a whim while shopping at Superstore and had a hard time processing the shocking news after discovering she won $100,000.
The Vernon resident, who purchased her ticket from Superstore on Anderson Way, was dog-sitting for a friend when she found out she won after scanning it on BCLC’s Lotto! App.
“I was on my friend’s couch in the living room,” she recalled. “It took a while to process and I’m still processing it.”
Sparling couldn’t wait to share the news with her family.
“My mom was the first one I told and then my brother called me right after I texted him. They were both very excited!”
Sparling said she’s been saving to purchase her first home and plans to put the majority of her prize towards a house in the near future.
“This prize means a lot and it’s going to change my life drastically,” she said.
