"It feels insane": Surrey woman wins life-changing scratch-and-win prize

Mar 23 2022, 7:57 pm

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.
