A Penticton woman didn’t think her scratch ticket looked like a winner after playing the game, but after scanning the barcode just to be sure – it turned out to be a $50,000 winner.

“I had scratched the top of the ticket and didn’t even bother looking at the bottom,” Lisa Doucette said in a BC Lottery Corporation media release. “I always check all my tickets just in case on the app. When I scanned the ticket I had to check it over and over.”
