New Westminster Resident Excited to Travel After Winning $500,000 Playing Scratch & Win

May 13, 2024


It was an ordinary day commuting on SkyTrain for Jeffory Frick — that is, until he realized he won the top prize of $500,000 from a $10 $500,000 Jackpot Scratch & Win ticket. 

Once he scratched the ticket on the train, Frick thought to himself “I actually won!” 

After validating his ticket with a retailer, the New Westminster resident was most excited to share the news and celebrate with his mom. 

Apart from taking her out for a nice birthday dinner, Frick plans to “travel the world and buy an exotic car.”  

On how it feels to win? 


Frick purchased the winning ticket at the Circle K on Columbia and Fourth Streets in New Westminster. 

So far in 2024, Scratch & Win players have redeemed more than $61 million in prize-winning tickets.
