“I scratched my ticket in the store and saw I had three pineapples. I didn’t react at first because I didn’t believe it!” Zampini said after collecting his cheque in Toronto.

The first people Zampini informed about the great news were his parents.“I sat them down at the table and told them, they were excited for me.”

The $250k prize is the maximum prize winnable from the Double Diamond scratch game. This news comes hot on the heels of news of another massive lottery win.
