Kelowna resident wins $50,000

Robyn Phelps won the money playing Fiesta, a scratch and win game

A Kelowna resident was playing a scratch and win game for fun when it turned into something else.

“I was at home scratching the ticket in my living room,” Robyn Phelps said.

“I thought I had messed up when I saw I had won $50,00, so I double-checked all the symbols I had scratched. I just kept staring at my ticket.”

Phelps bought her ticket from the Circle K on Glenmore Drive.

She added she’s going to think about how she’ll celebrate her extraordinary win and come up with a careful plan.

“I just want to blow it all, so I will just put it in the bank.”
