Charlottetown woman wins P.E.I.’s second $3M Scratch’N Win prize in a month

CHARLOTTETOWN (P.E.I.) – Nancy Adams of Charlottetown, P.E.I. is the second Islander to win $3 million on a Scratch’N Win ticket in just one month.

Nancy’s top-prize win on a $3,000,000 Prestige ticket came just a month after Susan Behi and Mehdi Shahsavari, also of Charlottetetown, won $3 million on the Triple Million Scratch’N Win ticket. These $3-million prizes are the two largest Scratch’N Win prizes ever awarded in Atlantic Canada.

“I asked the cashier for one of these tickets, so she held up three of them and said ‘I only have three left, which one do you want?’’ Adams said. “So I picked the one in the middle, scratched it and went over to the machine to check it.”

Adams wasn’t wearing her glasses and was having trouble seeing, so she asked another cashier to scan and check the ticket for her.

“He said ‘You’re a mega winner’ and I near fainted,” Adams said. “I’m just so excited, but it still doesn’t feel real yet.”

Adams wasn’t the only one who was excited about her win, as she had some enthusiastic reactions from her family.

“I called my son in Calgary and he was driving home from work at the time,” Adams said. “He had to pull the car over and kept yelling, ‘My mom’s a millionaire.’”

Plans for her winnings include purchasing a new Honda CRV and helping some of her family members. Adams has always rented, so she is looking forward to finally purchasing her first home.

The winning ticket was sold at the St. Peter’s Road Circle K in Charlottetown, P.E.I. The retailer will receive a one percent seller’s prize,
