Parksville resident Victoria Tyers had to check her scratch and win ticket several times before she could believe she had really won $75,000.

She purchased a ‘Deluxe Crossword’ ticket from the Mid Island Co-op on Island Highway East, according to a news release by BCLC.

“I counted the words at least 20 times,” she said. “I was in shock…my first thought was, ‘my trip is paid for!’”
