$100,000 CROSSWORD TRIPLER win in Stanley Mission
SASKATOON (JUNE 24, 2021) — Melanie Charles was happy when she thought she won $1,000 on her CROSSWORD TRIPLER ZING ticket. When she discovered she actually won $100,000, she was absolutely thrilled!
"My body just felt so numb,” she explained. “I could not believe what I was seeing!"
Charles purchased her winning ZING ticket at Amachewespimawin Co-op Gas Bar, located at 10 Hunt St. in Stanley Mission. After scratching her final letter, she returned to the store with her husband to scan her ticket.
“I thought I must have scratched something wrong,” she said. “When the cashier confirmed it was a $100,000 win, I was in shock.”
Charles has a few plans for her winnings.
“I’d like to buy myself a Jeep and a quad,” she said.
The winner also said she would like to buy a boat for her husband and build a new dock at their cabin.
The Stanley Mission resident said she also plans to put some of her winnings toward fulfilling a long-time dream of opening a gift shop in Stanley Mission where she can sell her bead work.
