A Victoria man was surprised when he realized his $10,000 lotto win was actually $75,000!

“I thought I had won $10,000,” Heinz Burki recalled. 

“I told my wife we get to go on a trip and then I realized I forgot to scratch a letter off, and I actually won $75,000,” he said excitedly. 

Burki won the top prize of $75,000 from BCLC’s Deluxe Crossword Scratch & Win game, purchasing his ticket from the Save-On-Foods on Foul Bay Road. 

He discovered he had won after arriving back home.

When asked how he plans on spending his winnings, Burki says he plans on sharing some of the money with his daughter and travel with his wife.
