Cindy Shook likes playing a variety of the scratch lottery games, but one in particular may have just risen to the top of her list of favourites.

She won $100,000 on a Set For Life ticket.

She bought a number of tickets from Westpark Drugs, located at 106 3722 57th Ave.

That evening as she scratched her tickets at her kitchen table in the very first game on the $5 Set For Life ticket, she revealed one $100,000 prize amount, and then a second. She thought it was just a close call, until she suddenly revealed the third identical amount to win $100,000.

“I thought, ‘Wow!’ ” she said.

She plans to use her winnings to pay off her mortgage and a few other bills.
