$250,000 BLACK PEARLS WIN IN SEDLEY!
Tyris Nikbakht got more than he bargained for when he stopped for fuel and picked up a $20 SUPER SCRATCH PACK. The Sedley resident scratched his BLACK PEARLS SCRATCH ‘N WIN ticket and discovered he won $250,000!
Nikbakht said he scratched the ticket in the store, but didn’t realize exactly how much he had won.
“I kept looking at the number and thinking I won $25,000,” he said. “I called my mom and told her I won $25,000 – I was pretty excited when I thought that was it.”
“When I got into my car, I looked at the ticket again and realized it was actually a $250,000 winner!” he continued. “I couldn’t believe it!”
The happy winner purchased the SCRATCH ’N WIN pack that contained his winning ticket at Esso Northgate Mall, located at 505 Albert Street North in Regina.
Nikbakht said he has some ideas for what to do with his winnings.
“For right now I’m going to invest,” he said. “Later on, when I’m done my schooling, the money is going to go toward a house.”
