Saskatoon winner scratches his way to $200K

“I told my mom to wake me up because I was dreaming,” recounted Justice Tallmadge as he sat in the Sask Lotteries Prize Payout Office to claim the $200,000 windfall he’s taking home after winning the top prize on his $7 LUCKY LINES EXTRAVAGANZA scratch ticket.

Tallmadge says the win represents a fresh start for him and his family, and it’s something he’s grateful for.

The Saskatoon winner’s ticket came from the Esso “On the Run” at 814 22nd St. He scratched it on Sept. 28.

“I didn’t even see the winning line at first. I handed it to my mom to look over and she started to freak out,” he laughed. Tallmadge and his mother double checked all the symbols multiple times to make sure they were holding a winner before informing the rest of the family.

Tallmadge says he’s got some plans for the winnings, including a visit to Alberta to see some family, but the reality of the win still has yet to really sink in.

“I think it’ll probably change when I actually have the money,” he noted before claiming his prize.

Sask Lotteries is the main fundraiser for more than 12,000 sport, culture and recreation groups in communities across Saskatchewan.
