Colleen Monds was speechless after realizing she won $50,000 from a Casino Royale Scratch & Win ticket.
Monds, who purchased the ticket from the Petro Canada on Horne Street in Mission, was sitting in her car when she scratched three identical symbols to find out she was a winner.
“It’s surreal to me,” Monds recalled. “I burst into tears.”
Monds says she called her sister right away from the car to share the news and showed the ticket to a few other family members to confirm the win was real.
The Mission resident plans to put her prize towards a few meaningful things and will celebrate closer to home as travel isn’t an option right now.
