Weyburn couple wins $250,000 with a scratch
Weyburn’s Colette Katschke and John Klassen are basking in a $250,000 windfall after picking up a winning CROSSWORD DELUXE ZING ticket in May.
The couple are regular ZING (Scratch n’ Win) players, usually picking up CROSSWORD or LUCKY LINES tickets. They picked up their winning ticket at M.D. Convenience, at 33 3rd St. NE in Weyburn, and were shocked to take home the ticket’s top prize.
“I thought I had won $10,000, and of course John wanted to scan it on the app right away,” Katschke recalled with a laugh. “That’s when we saw it was $250,000!”
The couple isn’t sure yet what they’ll do with the money, but are batting around a few ideas – home renovations, helping out their kids, and maybe eventually travelling to Canada’s east coast.
