Picking 'Plinko' paid off for a Chatham man.

Peter Gatfield is celebrating a $100,000 win after playing the scratch game.

A construction worker, Gatfield said he sometimes treats himself to an instant ticket when stopping by a convenience store.

"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.

The 41 year old said he still can't process this win. "It's a very exciting feeling," he smiled. "I plan to take a nice vacation overseas. I don't have any other plans yet."

The winning ticket was purchased at Queen's Variety & Laundromat on Queen Street in Chatham.
