Two people from Mount Pearl have won a top prize from an Atlantic Lottery Corporation's Set for Life scratch ticket.
Leonard and Joan French picked up their $675,000 winnings at Atlantic Lottery’s office in St. John’s on Friday.
“It’s sinking in,” Leonard told the corporation.
“It’s hard to believe. It’s amazing really.”
French purchased the ticket during his lunch break at a local Sobeys store and scratched it later in the day.
According to a press release by the corporation the couple "spent Thursday running around and making financial plans. While there are no plans to retire in the immediate future, the couple says a new computer and a trip to Hawaii are definitely on the agenda."
