Vanderhoof woman wins $50K on scratch ticket bought at local 7-Eleven

Patricia Winch says she wants to buy some furniture with the money, as travelling isn’t much of an option right now.

Vanderhoof’s Patricia Winch was all smiles this week when she won $50,000 from a Bingo Blast Scratch & Win ticket.

Winch purchased her ticket at the 7-Eleven on Burrard Avenue and was at home when she scratched her ticket, as per a press release from the British Columbia Lottery Corporation (BCLC).

“I noticed that I only needed one more number to win the prize. When I scratched the next number, my numbers came up! It took a moment to sink in,” Winch said.

“I think my daughters were more excited than I was when I told them.”

She claimed her prize through BCLC’s alternate prize-claim process.

As travelling isn’t much of an option right now with COVID-19 guidelines, Winch said she is going to use the money to purchase a few pieces of furniture.
