$200,000 Zing win in Regina
Regina resident Gwen Mills was surprised when she won $200,000 on her LUCKY LINES EXTRAVAGANZA Zing ticket – the game’s top prize!
Mills purchased her winning ticket, along with a few others, on May 4 at the Sherwood Co-op at 4705 Gordon Rd. in Regina.
When Mills scratched her ticket at home, she thought she might have a winner but wasn’t sure. So, when she went to the local store to check her ticket, she wasn't expecting what happened next.
“I went to the store, and the screen lit up with some numbers. I thought it was $2,000,” she recalled. “I wasn't counting the zeroes. So, I asked the cashier who said ‘no, it's $200,000!’"
“I was in total shock,” she said, adding that she then walked out of the store to share the news with her- common-law husband.
“I've never won this much money in my whole life," she said while claiming her prize. “At times, I still can't believe I won!”
The happy winner plans to use her windfall toward bills and is thinking about putting some toward purchasing her mother's home.
