N.B. man takes home second Set for Life top prize worth $675K
MONCTON (N.B.) – Camille Roy of Saint-Basile, N.B. had a familiar feeling after recently scratching a top-prize Set for Life ticket. Roy knew the feeling well as it was his second top-prize on the Scratch’N Win ticket, taking home the first one in 2016.
“When I saw the prize, I thought, ‘No way,’” Roy said. “I told my wife I had a surprise and that we would have to go to Moncton to get it.”
Roy’s wife, Adrienne, could hardly fathom the news when Camille told her.
“When we won the first time, we couldn’t believe it, so when we won the second time, I was in such a state of shock that I almost fainted,” Adrienne said. “Among all those boxes of tickets, there’s only so many winning ones so it’s incredible to get not only one but two of them.”
Atlantic Lottery’s Set for Life is a $4 Scratch’N Win ticket that offers two options for the top prize. Winners can choose to receive $1,000 a week for 25 years, or a lump sum payment of $675,000. Roy and his wife will receive the lump sum payment.
“Since we are getting older, we opted to receive the lump sum payment now,” Roy said. “We made the same decision for the same reason last time we won.”
In addition to the top prize, Set for Life features prizes ranging from $4 to $20,000. The overall odds of winning a prize of any size are 1 in 3.24.
Roy and Adrienne have already scratched a lot of items off their bucket list thanks to their first Set for Life win. While they shared some of their winnings with their children the first time around, they plan to share a large portion of their prize with their family once again.
“We have two great boys who are 40 and 43, we are such a close little family,” Adrienne said. “Camille told them the news over the phone and they even started crying because it is such incredible news.”
This is the third top prize claimed from Set for Life’s 4052 series, which launched in April 2021. There are two top prizes remaining in the series and only a limited number of tickets still available at retail locations.
The winning Set for Life ticket was purchased at the Edmundston Truck Stop in Edmundston, N.B. The retailer will receive a one per cent seller’s prize.
