Pomona Resident Wins $20,000 on Scratch & Win

Voice of: Pedro

The Boledo frenzy has waned with the temporary suspension of the nightly draw and the Sunday Lottery, but an alternative game – Scratch and Win allows players to find out whether they’ve won on their investment immediately, that’s as fast as you can scratch the ticket to find out. Scratch and Win’s latest winner, Pedro, is a resident of Pomona Village in Stann Creek. He brought a ticket to our studio which he said he purchased in that village on Tuesday and when he scratched it, he discovered that he had won quite a substantial amount.


Voice of: Pedro, Scratch & Win Winner

“I just start purchase – play the Scratch and Win tickets, noh, and for like a month or two. I guess I spend like a hundred dollars more or less, and yesterday I say, you know what, when I come from work, I say mek I stop and buy one scratch ticket, noh? So I bought it, and I scratch the first one when I reach home, because, you know, I’m tired, I mi di drive, so when I reach home, I scratch it and I see the first one. So I was with one of my friends, and when I see the first one, I call her and I tell her why I win $2,000, remember I ticket buy, I win $2,000. Ih she okay, how the rest. Yoh done check the rest? I tell her no nuh yet, but I seh, you know what, mek I scratch the rest and when I got scratch it, I see each one of them have the same $2,000, and when I see it, well da $ 20,000.”
