A Nanaimo man is $100,000 richer after scoring big on a Scratch & Win ticket he purchased at a Mac’s Convenience Store.
Cory Anderson won the money playing “Tripling Red 7s” and called the payout “amazing.”
He purchased his ticket at the Mac’s on Depature Bay Road in Nanaimo and scanned it using the BCLC Lotto! app during a break in the park.
The Nanaimo resident says he celebrated the unexpected payday with his girlfriend over a steak dinner, and plans to invest the remainder of his win with the goal of buying a new home in the future — but not before he gets “all the fluids changed on my truck.”
It’s the second time in a week that BCLC announced a Scratch & Win winner in Nanaimo. Last week another resident won big at Scratch & Win with a $675,000 prize.
