Coquitlam Man Gives Early Morning Wake-Up Call After Winning $500,000!

Winner Wook Jae J.


Congratulations Wook Jae!

Coquitlam’s Wook Jae J. had half a million reasons to wake up his mom and sister early the morning after the BC/49 draw on October 20, 2021 .

Wook Jae, who purchased his ticket on the BCLC Lotto! app , was just getting ready to start his day when he decided to check his tickets.

“I saw the prize box open up in the app, so I clicked it… And it was saying $500,000,” says Wook Jae. “I was in shock. I thought I was dreaming.”

Unable to contain his surprise, Wook Jae had to wake the rest of his family.

“My mom was sleeping, but I just had to wake her up. She woke up right away when I said I won $500,000. She couldn’t say anything. I also had to tell my sister.”

Wook Jae calls the win a “memorable moment” in his life, saying that this will be a life-changing experience for him and his family. He wants to put the money towards buying a small condo, and will be setting aside the rest to go on a trip to Hawaii with his family.   

Congratulations Wook Jae, wishing you and your family the best! Anyone Can Win, #YouCouldBeNext
