Peter Doersam won $75,000 on an INSTANT SCRABBLE ticket

It's a good start to the new year for an Elmwood man.

Peter Doersam thought he won $5,000 on an INSTANT SCRABBLE ticket, but he actually won $75,000.

Doersam says he went out to the car and told his wife to come inside the store and check the ticket too. They checked it two more times and saw the same thing.

The couple shared some high fives in the store before heading home to celebrate.

Doersam, a father of three, says the money is going to top up their children's educations funds and then they are all going on a well-deserved family vacation.

The winning ticket was purchased at Mac's on 10th Street in Hanover.
