A Victoria man is planning to move into a new home and do a bit of travelling after winning $100,000 on a scratch and win ticket he had purchased from Save-On-Foods on Foul Bay Road. 

“I was at home and I stood there for a few minutes and just looked at it,” he recalled of the moment he realized he won. 

“I got my glasses to make sure it was true.”

After taking a moment to look at his ticket in silence, Ackerman called his sister to share the news. 

“She was cheering while I was still in shock,” he said. 

When asked what he plans to do with the winnings, Ackerman explained he is looking forward to moving into a new home and travelling. 

“It feels pretty darn good,” he said.
