A Ton of Travel in the Future for Duncan Set for Life Winner


It was a lazy afternoon at home for Duncan’s Ken Motherwell when he scratched his way to a $675,000 top prize on a Set for Life Scratch & Win ticket.

“I bought ten tickets, and my wife bought two,” said Motherwell. “I was scratching my second ticket and I told her she needs to grab her glasses and come look at my ticket. We both started screaming!”

Motherwell went down to the Cobble Hill Grocery to scan his ticket to make sure they weren’t seeing things.

“The girls validated it and they were like ‘Oh my God’ and we all took a picture together,” said Motherwell.

The Vancouver Island residents are avid travelers and are planning for even more trips in the future with the comfort of such a windfall.

“We want to go to Belize and then maybe an African Safari,” explained Motherwell. “We have a motor home and we plan to do more traveling in the U.S. with it when the weather is warmer.”

“It’s really amazing. I’m very happy about this and, of course, very grateful,” he added.
