A Lantzville woman bought a scratch ticket called ‘$100,000 Jackpot’ and that’s exactly what she ended up winning.

Barbara Don confirmed her win by scanning her ticket on her phone, noted a B.C. Lottery Corporation press release.

“I … stared at the screen thinking this can’t be real,” she said. “I was in disbelief. I thought I was reading the whole ticket wrong.”

Don bought the winning ticket at a Save-On-Foods location in Nanaimo. She was buying her mother a lottery ticket and decided to pick up one for herself as well. She ended up taking her mother for a celebratory birthday dinner.

“I am happy picking up the dinner tabs for my friends and family with this special win,” she said, adding that she also plans to put some of her winnings toward building her dream home.
