San Pedrana Wins $50K in Scratch & Win

There is a new Scratch and Win winner. She hails from the island town of San Pedro. She has been buying the tickets off and on for about a year and on Friday night, she purchased a lucky ticket and would go on to win fifty thousand dollars. Today, she travelled to Belize City to claim her winnings and News Five was able to get an interview with her. She says that the money will be used to complete her home on the island.


Voice of: Winner, Scratch & Win

“I bought the ticket on Friday evening at a little restaurant named Chinatown in San Pedro. I went home and I scratched the ticket and when I realised the number seventeen came up. I didn’t thought I would have won fifty thousand, but then when I scratched and I saw that it was fifty thousand, I was happy and surprise at the same time. I couldn’t believe it. I called my partner and asked him to double check the ticket just to be sure that it was a winning ticket.”

“Now it was Friday you won it, why wait until Tuesday to come pick up the prize?”


Voice of: Winner

“…because until today I had off. So until today, I could have travelled.”

“How long have you been playing Scratch & Win?”


Voice of: Winner

“About a year ago.”


Paul Lopez

“What could you see yourself doing with this money?”


Voice of: Winner

“Well we were building our house – my partner and I – and we had to put it on pause for a while. So I guess, I will be resuming with that, first thing.”
