Pi­apot res­i­dent wins $100,000 on scratch and win lot­tery ticket

The Southwest Booster - - OPINION -

What goes around comes around, in a good way, for Saskatchew­an’s new­est lot­tery prize win­ner.

Thomas Munro re­ceived a birth­day gift of a Player’s Choice Mega Pack from his aunt, and one of the tick­ets in that pack earned him $100,000.

It was a fit­ting re­pay­ment of a dose of luck that Munro gave his aunt at Christ­mas a few years back, when a ticket he gifted her won $10,000.

Af­ter check­ing his ticket both on the WCLC Mo­bile App as well as an in-store ticket checker, he phoned his aunt to tell her the news.

“She couldn’t be­lieve it!” he said in a press re­lease. “I mean, what are the odds?!”

Munro is plan­ning to put his birth­day win­nings to­ward bill pay­ments, sav­ings, and a very spe­cial fam­ily va­ca­tion.

“I’m go­ing to take my fam­ily on a va­ca­tion,” he said. “I’m go­ing to ask my aunt to come with us; I feel like it’s the least I can do!”

Munro’s aunt pur­chased the win­ning pack of tick­ets at the Phar­masave in Maple Creek.
