A nightly ritual has produced a big lottery win for Angeline Splockton.
The Tsawwassen resident purchased her Luxury Crossword Scratch and Win tickets at the Petro Canada gas station on Tsawwassen Drive and scratched them just prior to going to bed like she always does.
This time it was a celebration instead of sleep that followed.
“I was scratching each letter and saw that I had nine words and won $500,” recalled Splockton. “I had to double check the ticket on my BC Lotto app since I was so focused that I had won $500, it took me a while to realize that I had uncovered 11 words and won $100,000!”
Splockton said she couldn’t wait to share her news with everyone she knew, including her boyfriend and kids, who were just as excited as her.
She has a few ideas for her prize, including purchasing a new car and taking her daughter on a weekend-spa trip when it’s safe to do so. She plans to put the rest away for her family.
