Alice Pellissey is purring with delight over her recent lottery win. The Yellowknife resident scratched her way to a $10,000 windfall on her MEOW MEOW ticket.
Pellissey bought her $1 ZING ticket from the Village Reddi-Mart, located at #16-496 Byrne Road. She discovered that she had won the game’s top prize when she checked her ticket the next day at another Reddi-Mart in downtown Yellowknife.
Although Pellissey hadn’t expected the windfall, she said she managed to keep her calm. That’s not to say she was unaffected by the news, though.
“I didn’t get too excited – I was just happy,” she remembered.
The winner said she plans to use some of her windfall to travel to visit family.
