Sylvan Lake woman wins $200,000
Lillian Uytendaele of Sylvan Lake bought a lottery ticket while fuelling up in Edmonton and won $200,000.
Uytendaele stopped for gas at the Inglewood Petro-Canada on 111th Avenue, heading northwest.
She said she doesn’t usually buy instant tickets but decided to try a $7 Jewel 7’s scratch ’n’ win when she noticed there was a promotion offering gas discounts with lottery ticket purchases.
She didn’t think she’d won after originally scratching but took it to a local store at home to check anyway.
She said she couldn’t believe it when the retailer told her she’d won such a large amount.
Uytendaele plans to use the money for a trip to the East Coast to visit family and fulfil a lifelong dream for her upcoming birthday: become a Harley-Davidson motorcycle owner.
