Cayo Resident Wins $50K from Scratch & Win

There is a fifty-thousand-dollar Scratch and Win winner from the Cayo District tonight.  Today, Luis made his way over to our office on Coney Drive, along with Scratch and Win Director Alex Gamero, to share in the excitement. After taxes, the lucky winner took home a cheque for forty-two thousand, five hundred dollars. As we found out today, this is the second time that Luis is winning and back in June, he took home two thousand dollars. The win comes just in time for the Christmas season.

Voice of: Luis, Winner, Scratch & Win

“This is a blessing, especially at this time, every bit counts.”


Duane Moody

“You’ve been a player. I understand that earlier this year you also won.”


Voice of: Luis

“Yes, sometime in June, I won two thousand dollars and now I was surprised to see that I won the fifty thousand dollars.”


Duane Moody

“It has to come in handy for this Christmas season right. You done have your plans for what you are going to do with this money?”


Voice of: Luis

“Definitely. About half of it is already spent. I already owe most of it, medical bills and everything so yes.”


Duane Moody

“So you’ll continue to play?”


Voice of: Luis

“Well I buy every now and then when I go to the shop and so when I see the tickets, I sometimes buy. So I know that if I don’t buy I can’t win. So I try my best and every now and again I buy and twice I have been victorious. Many times five dollars, two dollars and so, but twice it has been a good amount.”

“We have the best payouts, the best prizes in the world and that gets reflected in these huge prizes. You know, fifty thousand dollars for Luis that will definitely change his life for the better. For every one person that comes in and wins fifty grand, you have hundreds, thousands of people that win five hundred, one hundred, fifty, ten and so on and so forth. So for every one person you’ve seen in the news, there are a thousand other people out there that have won money. This two-dollar ticket, Lucky Seven, has two ten-thousand-dollar prizes and nobody has come in to claim them so those are out there somewhere. We have this three-dollar ticket, the Loteria or chalupa, this has a twenty-thousand-dollar prize that nobody has won and it is actually a fun game to play – it is exactly like the board game. And we have this five-dollar ticket, Cash Blast, with a fifty-thousand-dollar prize. Nobody has won this one. So, I think if you get these three tickets you probably have a good chance to be on the news next, like Luis.”
