ST. JOHN’S (N.L.) – Bev and Bob Haskell of Conception Bay South, N.L. always dreamt of going on a cruise for their 25th wedding anniversary, but never got the opportunity to do so at the time.
Now, with more than 50 years of marriage under their belt, they finally plan to take that dream vacation thanks to their Set for Life top-prize win.
“It was so exciting, I scratched three suns and I said, ‘Oh nice, now where’s the prize number?’” Bev said. “I was looking for $4 or $20 maybe, so when I saw ‘Set for Life’ I just couldn’t believe it.”
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. The Haskells will receive the lump sum payment.
“When I got my phone out and scanned the ticket, it said ‘Major winner, contact Atlantic Lottery,’” Bev said. “It’s almost like when you look at it, it can’t be real, that you actually won Set for Life.”
In addition to their long-awaited anniversary cruise, the couple intends to use their winnings to help out their children, get a new kitchen with all new cabinets and purchase an environmentally friendly vehicle. The couple also said they are eager to gather all of their family together to celebrate their big win.
“When you really think about the odds, it’s incredible, you know,” Bob said. “We’re very grateful.”
The Haskells purchased their winning Set for Life ticket at Kelligrews Orangestore in Conception Bay South, N.L. The seller will receive a one per cent seller’s prize.
