Birthday Brings Lottery Winnings in Piapot!
A few years ago, Thomas Munro bought his aunt a PLAYER’S CHOICE MEGA PACK for Christmas, and it won $10,000. On his birthday this year, she returned the favour – 10 times over! Munro won $100,000 on the HOT LINES ticket from the PLAYER’S CHOICE MEGA PACK he received from his aunt.
The lucky winner said he used the WCLC Mobile App to confirm his win.
“I checked my ticket at home on a Saturday morning,” he said. “I saw I won $100,000 and called for my wife to come and double-check it for me.”
“We couldn’t believe it,” he continued. “We went to the store to triple-check the ticket; even after checking again, we were completely shocked!”
Soon after, Munro said he called his aunt to tell her the news.
“She couldn’t believe it!” he said. “I mean, what are the odds?!”
Munro said he plans to put his birthday winnings toward bill payments, savings, and a very special family vacation.
“I’m going to take my family on a vacation,” he said. “I’m going to ask my aunt to come with us; I feel like it’s the least I can do!”
Munro’s aunt purchased the winning pack of Zing tickets at the Pharmasave located at 118 Jasper Street in Maple Creek.
