Red Deer woman scores $100,000 lotto win

A Red Deer woman thought she won $10,000, but then she realized the winnings were 10 times more.

Wanda Nielsen’s Scratch ‘n Win ticket showed $100,000.

“I thought I had won $10,000 and I was quite excited!,” said Nielsen.

She had scratched off the Stocking Stuffer ticket at home, but when she took a closer look, she realized it was actually the far bigger amount.

Nielsen returned to the store, Red Deer Mohawk at 5407-49th Ave., the next morning and had her win confirmed.

“The win is a godsend!,” said Nielsen.

Nielsen plans to share the winnings with family and a few selected charities. The money will also help her to move. She picked up her winnings on Jan. 11.
