$150,000 EMERALD MINE Zing win in Saskatoon!
Norm McConnell is happy that he tried something new. The Saskatoon resident won $150,000 on his $5 EMERALD MINE Zing ticket.
“My usual games are LUCKY LINES and CROSSWORD,” he said. “But this time I asked the retailer which games were new, and she said EMERALD MINE.”
“I took the ticket home, scratched it and saw a $150,000 prize!” he continued. “I read the back of the ticket and thought, ‘I better go to the store right away!’”
McConnell said he took his ticket to the store and scanned it a couple times before he started to believe he had won the Zing game’s top prize.
“I scanned the ticket, and $150,000 appeared across the screen,” he said. “I had to check it again to make sure I was seeing right.”
The happy winner said he has a few ideas for his windfall, including home renovations and bill payments, but he has yet to make any definitive plans.
McConnell purchased his winning ticket at Saskatoon Co-operative Stonebridge Food Store, located at 511 Wellman Crescent in Saskatoon.
