A Kelowna woman is $50,000 richer after purchasing a winning scratch and win ticket.

Robyn Phelps’ quest for entertainment turned into the thrill-of-a-lifetime when she won $50,000 playing Fiesta, according to a B.C. Lottery Corporation press release.

“I was at home scratching the ticket in my living room,” Phelps said in the release. “I thought I had messed up when I saw I had won $50,000, so I double checked all the symbols I had scratched. I just kept staring at my ticket.”

Phelps wants to take her time with the $50,000 and will make a careful plan on how to spend the money.

“I just don’t want to blow it all, so I will just put it in the bank,” she said.

She purchased the winning ticket from the Circle K on Glenmore Drive in Kelowna.
