Pearl Davey and Robert Robertson couldn’t help but let out screams of excitement upon realizing they scored $100,000 from a Pac Man Slots Scratch & Win ticket.
The Vancouver residents purchased the ticket from Jong Wah convenience store on East Pender Street and were still inside when they checked their ticket on the self-checker.
“I screamed,” said Davey. “Doreen was yelling ‘I won $1000, I won $10,000, I won $100,000!’ I was like ‘yeah right!’”
Davey and Robertson shared their shocking news with the whole neighbourhood, which was so excited for them.
