Rimbey man wins $100,000 on ZING ticket

RIMBEY – James Taylor won $100,000 after scratching his way to the second top prize on a Super Set For Life Zing ticket he picked up back in September.

Taylor picked up the $20 ticket from Gord’s Mini Mart at 5006 – 50 Ave. in Rimbey on Sept. 26. He took it home and scratched it, and within 40 minutes was back in the store to verify what he was seeing.

“I saw at the bottom that I matched three symbols, and I live close by so I went back to Gord’s,”said Taylor.

The staff validated his ticket and confirmed thatTaylor was $100,000 richer.

“I was excited but they were very excited – maybe more excited,” laughed Taylor.

Now that he’s collected his windfall, Taylor says he’s not sure what he’ll do with it yet – though he notes he might take a trip to visit family when it’s safe to do so.
