A Barriere couple won more than a half-million dollars on a scratch and win lottery ticket they bought in Kamloops.
Sheron Rehbein and Daniel Comeau stopped at the 7-Eleven convenience store on Eighth Street on the North Shore and purchased a $5 Set for Life ticket that led to a $675,000 prize.
“I usually buy the crosswords,” Rehbein said, referring to a crossword-themed scratch and won ticket. “I don’t know what drew me to this ticket this particular time. As soon as I saw the three matching symbols, I couldn’t believe it. I couldn’t wait to tell Dan.”
What to do with the windfall?
“My dad gave me a ring. It’s an antique now and I’d like to get it restored,” Rehbein said.
Comeau has his eye on recreational pursuits.
“Although we still feel numb, a new camper would be great and this will definitely help with retirement,” he said. “I would love to buy some property with a cabin and maybe have some animals. Something like that has always been a dream.”
