Deroche woman thought she won $1,000, turns out it was $100,000

Scratch and Win ticket an amazing surprise for local winner

Rina Scott was excited when she thought she won $1,000 playing 200X Multiplier, and completely floored when she realized her prize had two more zeros.

“I was at home scratching my tickets,” said Scott, who purchased the winning Scratch & Win ticket at the Esso gas station in Deroche.

“I saw that I had won $1,000 but I didn’t notice that there was a multiplier for the game,” Scott explained. “When I went to scan the ticket it showed that I had actually won $100,000!”

The first person Scott told about her amazing win was her mother, but she said everyone she knows is happy for her.

“I live in a small town,” she said. “Everyone is excited for me.”

On how it feels to win, Scott said, “This will change my life for sure.”
