Pair of winners from Buffalo Narrows take home $250,000!
Regina Thunderchild and Terrence Chartier are $250,000 wealthier thanks to their CROSSWORD LUXURY EDITION instant ticket.
The pair picked up their ticket from Lake Country Co-op @ Big River Gas Bar in Big River on the night of August 25. When they returned home, Regina scratched their ticket and was pleasantly surprised.
Her scratch revealed 11 words. Regina said she couldn’t help herself from jumping around in excitement.
“I almost gave Terrence a heart attack,” she said with a laugh.
Terrence waited until they had their ticket validated by a retailer before celebrating their win. “I’ve been pranked before,” Terrance said.
In addition to being debt free, the happy winners have a few plans for their recent windfall, “We’re going to Calgary for sure, and we’ll do some other travelling,” Regina said.
“I never thought I’d win this much,” she added.
Sask Lotteries is the main fundraiser for more than 12,000 sport, culture and recreation groups in communities across Saskatchewan.
