Saskatoon resident scratches his way to $200,000 prize
Roger Grimard scratched his LUCKY LINES EXTRAVAGANZA instant ticket and uncovered the game’s top prize, netting him a win of $200,000.
The Saskatoon resident purchased his ticket from Night Owl Grocery & Confectionary at 9-3310 Fairlight Dr. in Saskatoon at the stroke of midnight on Feb. 11.
Within half an hour, Grimard discovered his windfall.
“I thought ‘Oh my God! Did I scratch something wrong by accident?’” he recalled as he claimed his prize.
After double checking the symbols, Grimard downloaded the Lotto Spot app to double check his ticket. When he scanned it, he was elated.
“Oh my god, right on!” he exclaimed.
The happy winner has a few plans in mind for his windfall.
“No big plans, maybe I’ll renovate my deck for now,” the Saskatoon resident said.
“I’m still in shock,” Grimard added. “I’m happy though!”
Sask Lotteries is the main fundraiser for more than 12,000 sport, culture and recreation groups in communities across Saskatchewan.
