Avid fisherman Devin Remanda feels like he's "in a dream" after reeling in a whopping $200,000 from a Casino Royale scratch and win ticket.
The Francois Lake resident was picking up a few items at the Burns Lake Chevron on Yellowhead Highway when he decided to purchase a few scratch and win tickets.
Remanda was in disbelief upon returning to his vehicle and scratching the tickets.
"I realized I had won and decided to scan the ticket on my BCLC Lotto! app and it showed up a winner," Remanda recalled. "I didn't believe it at first, I couldn't believe what I was seeing on the screen."
The first to find out the news was his brother and then the rest of his family.
"My mom was so happy that she cried and my father was close to tears."
Remanda plans to purchase a new pickup truck and put the rest into savings.
$200,000 is the top prize offered on Casino Royale and the odds of winning it are one in 250,000.
