A Victoria man is $100,000 richer after scoring big on a Scratch & Win ticket he purchased at the 7-Eleven at 4001 Quadra Street.
Robert Stagg says he is hoping to expand his custom-bike shop with the money won by playing Did I Win? for the big prize on August 21.
“My first thought was pure disbelief,” he said. “It only really kicked in about three days ago.”
Stagg says he will use the BCLC lottery prize to enhance his existing bike shop so he can weld and paint, as well as order additional bike parts. He says he will also be gifting some of the win to his mom.
“My dream if I ever won was to find some land with a house and shop on it so I could work on my bikes,” he said.
