Most of us have bought scratch-and-win lottery tickets at one time or another, but for a woman in Surrey, her decision to buy one sure paid off.
Erin Robinson bought a Bingo scratch card at the Safeway on Fraser Highway and scratched the ticket later that night at her parents’ house.

“I ended up finishing scratching it while I was in bed and didn’t want to wake anyone,” she explained. “I was in shock and didn’t sleep that night!”
Robinson ended up winning $150,000.
She waited until 6 am the next morning to wake her mom and tell her the news.
“We have fun with the Lotto! app so I showed her, and the noise started going off. She was speechless and asked if I slept at all and of course, I told her I couldn’t!”
So, what is she going to do with the cash? Robinson wants to take a Hawaiian vacation.
“It feels insane to win. I’m excited when I win a free ticket, so this is mind-blowing,” she added.
