WINNER: Albert Zimmer $7,085

The final Saturday of the LGT World Women’s Curling Championship was action packed, but so was Curling Alberta’s 50/50. To celebrate Curling Alberta’s supporters during a marathon of 50/50s, two early bird prizes were added, giving ticket-purchasers three chances for fans to win big cash on the final Saturday.

Albert Zimmer was excited to learn that he had won Friday’s daily jackpot after making an out of the blue purchase. “Well, it’s funny, I actually went to buy an Oilers 50/50 ticket and googled 50/50. Curling Alberta’s was just the first one that came up, so I thought, I’m going to buy one of these”, and it is a good thing he did as he won half of Friday’s $14,170 pot. Having already purchased a ticket for Saturday’s draw, he is hoping that his luck continues to pay off.

Starting out with a Curling Canada learn to curl program at the Ottewell years ago, he continued playing after moving to Fort McMurray in a mixed league. Noting that he while he didn’t have much luck curling and hasn’t curled in years, he did have a lot of fun

Similar to the rest of the population, Albert is looking forward to getting back on a plane in the winter and heading down to Mexico. Until then, his winnings are going to be ‘put in a sock’ and saved for his vacation.

We also get to celebrate ticket-holder A-10020948 who won Saturday’s 2:30pm early bird prize of $1,250 and A-10091894 who won the 7:00pm prize of $2,500.

Congratulations and thank you to Albert and the early bird winners for continuing to support Curling Alberta’s 50/50. Also, a big thank you to all the ticket-purchasers that selected their local curling club when purchasing their ticket, the selected club will receive a portion of the proceeds. We are also grateful to every fan that continues to purchase tickets to help create a legacy for our sport and to fund community curling programs throughout Alberta. 

The 50/50 returns tomorrow for the final 50/50 draw. Once again, early bird purchasers will have a chance to win big in addition to the daily draw. Purchase your tickets prior to 12:30pm to be entered to win $1,250 or prior to 7:00pm for a chance to win $5,000. Visit Curling Alberta’s website, for more information and to purchase. Tickets can be purchased from 9:00 AM – 10:00 PM MT Buy Your Tickets Here!
