Elizabeth Heywood Scratch and Win Lotto

One Victoria woman got a big boost to her bank account after she scored a $50,000 windfall on a scratch-and-win ticket.

Elizabeth Heywood says she was grabbing a coffee when she scratched her “Money…I’m Home!” Scratch & Win ticket.

“I was at Starbucks when I scratched and saw I won,” she recalled. “I was excited and couldn’t believe I won $50,000!”

The Victoria resident bought her winning ticket from London Drugs on Quadra Street.

She plans to use the prize money to take her friends out for a nice meal, and will share some of it with family and save some for a future vacation.

“I’m very happy to have won the money and to be able to share my joy with others,” said Heywood.
