A Nanaimo man spent a “sleepless night” after finding out just before bedtime that he’d scratched a $50,000 winning ticket.
Stephen Parkes won the top prize on a $3 Wish List ticket purchased in Vancouver, according to a B.C. Lottery Corporation press release.
“I couldn’t believe that I had won,” he said in the release. “I’ve been playing since my early 20s and had never won anything until now.”
