Yellowknifer Curtis Hardisty says he couldn’t believe his eyes when he checked his Set for Life Zing ticket and discovered he had won $20,000.

“I scratched the ticket and uncovered three $20,000 icons, but didn’t think I was seeing things right.” he adds.

The winning ticket was purchased from the downtown Reddi Mart in Yellowknife according to a news release from the Western Canada Lottery Corporation.

Hardisty says he had to take the ticket back to the store to scan it there before he started to believe he had actually won.
