A South Okanagan woman says she was shocked after winning $50,000 on a scratch-and-win lottery ticket.
Sharon Dennison of Osoyoos purchased the ticket from a convenience store on Main Street and was at home when she scratched the Bingo Blast ticket.
“I was like ‘I have 4 corners, I have 4 corners!’” Dennison recalled after scratching the lucky ticket.
“I went to 7-Eleven and handed the ticket to the retailer. When they scanned it, the machine made a big noise and the amount popped up on the screen. I was so shocked I almost fell over!”
Dennison says she normally winters in Belize, and normally plays Sunday Bingo there, but has recently been playing the Bingo Blast tickets at home.
The $50,000 is the game’s top prize.
Dennison says she has no immediate plans regarding her windfall, but still called it exciting.
