$100,000 win for Chatham man

Chatham’s Peter Gatfield shows off his recent lottery winnings.

Peter Gatfield of Chatham is $100,000 richer following a recent lottery win.

Gatfield won the cash playing Instant Plinko.

The construction worker said he periodically snags tickets when he stops by a convenience store. This is his first big win.

“I went home to play my ticket and when I revealed I won $100,000, I thought it was a joke. I screamed,” he said in a media release. “I just held my ticket and stared at it. I told my mom and she was over the moon happy.”

The 41-year-old said it took a while to process the win.

“It’s a very exciting feeling,” he said. “I plan to take a nice vacation overseas. I don’t have any other plans yet.”

Gatfield purchased the lucky ticket at Queen’s Variety & Laundromat on Queen Street in Chatham.
