Benque Resident Buys Lucky Scratch & Win Ticket in San Ignacio

Over the past several months, we’ve heard people in various parts of the country turning up with winning Scratch and Win tickets. The latest such winner, who for safety reasons only goes by the name Cesar, hails from the west. He told News Five today that he lives in Benque but decided to buy a five-dollar ticket in San Ignacio on Saturday. And that he had to ask someone to check the ticket to confirm that he had indeed won. He told us he has a couple ventures to invest in.
