A Victoria man is $100,000 richer after playing the British Columbia Lottery Corporation’s bingo grand scratch-and-win game.
Alan Parfett said he’s excited about the financial cushion he will now have, and he plans to use some of the money to take a special lady out for dinner.
“I hadn’t finished scratching the card yet and when I scanned it on my phone I thought, ’that can’t be right,” Parfett said in a news release. “I had to check it again and again.”
Parfett bought the winning ticket at the Save-On-Foods on Pandora Avenue in Victoria.
He added that he would “purchase an island as well as donate a big chunk of the win” if he ever took home a larger jackpot prize.
