A Winnipeg man is the city’s newest millionaire after winning big with a Set For Life Ticket.
Gregory James bought the $5 ticket at the Red River Co-op on Centre Street in Bridgwater. When he came home to scratch the ticket, he was startled and hustled back to the store half an hour later.
“When I saw that I had scratched three Set for Life icons, I thought, ‘Sweet!’” says James.
Winners can choose to take the lump sum payment, or they can choose to receive $1,000 a week for 25 years.
James says he hasn’t made any plans for his winnings.
