A Canadian lottery player dreaming of retirement is now rich after winning it big from a Scratch & Win ticket.

Geraldine McLean, a resident of Prince Rupert, BC, won $100,000 from BCLC’s Bingo Grand Scratch & Win ticket.

McLean told BCLC she plays the lottery with a dream of one day retiring. She was taken aback when she discovered she won. “I was at work and thought to myself, ‘Am I going to tell anyone?'” she said.
