Maple Ridge man wins big on scratch ticket

Abdalla Hassan bought the winning ticket on break at work

A Maple Ridge man is $100,000 richer thanks to a lotto ticket he purchased in Surrey.

Abdalla Hassan was taking a break from work when he purchased the Scorchin’ Slots Scratch & Win ticket at the Town Pantry in the Guildford Town Centre.

“I don’t know how to describe it, I never thought I would be fortunate to win,” said Hassan, adding that when he called his daughter to let her know she “freaked out”.

“It’s exciting, and I feel really blessed to be a winner,” he said.
