A Christmas tradition between a Kaslo daughter and her now passed father paid off 50 thousand ways last year.
On the 28th day of December Breann Hallstrom scratched herself a $50,000 windfall from BC Lotto.
Hallstrom’s big win from a BCLC Happy Camper Scratch & Win ticket could be thought of as serendipitous.
“Holy crap I was in disbelief,” she explained of the moment she discovered she won. “I usually scratch my tickets on December 28 which is the day my dad passed, and it’s a nice coincidence I won on a Happy Camper ticket as my dad loved to camp.”
The Kaslo resident purchased her ticket from the Esso on Highway 31 in Kaslo. She said she enjoys playing BCLC’s Scratch & Win tickets as it was a Christmas tradition for her and her father.
Hallstrom plans to get a new tattoo with some of her prize, and also looks forward to treating herself to a new bedroom set and paying down some of her mortgage.
