$100,000 lotto win in Oyen

Written by ECA Review


Rodd Zawacky could not believe his eyes when he scratched his $5 CROSSWORD 2X 3X ZING ticket and uncovered a $100,000 prize.

Zawacky purchased his winning ZING ticket at the end of March from the Oyen Value Drug Mart, located at 101 1 Avenue East in Oyen. 

“I scanned the ticket on the Lotto Spot! app right after I scratched it,” he said. “I think I probably scanned it ten times that day and just as many times the next day.” 

“All in all, I’ve probably scanned the ticket at least 30 times,” he laughed. “I really couldn’t believe it!”

The winner said he has a couple of ideas for his recent windfall.

“If worldwide travel was permitted right now I would probably use the money to go on a nice vacation,” he said. “But, since it’s not, I’m going to put the money in the bank.”

“Eventually I would like to buy a house,” he continued. “This money will help me do that!”
