Who's Hungry? Victoria Man Discovers $500,000 Extra Win During Lunch!

Winner Bert F.

$500,000.00

Congratulations Bert!

It was everything but an ordinary weekend lunch for Victoria’s Bert F., who was with his wife and son when he decided to check his Lotto Max ticket from the August 27, 2021 draw.

Shortly after that, he heard the BCLC Lotto! app winner’s jingle, followed by a $500,000 Extra win appearing on his screen.

“My wife actually overheard the sound of the app playing the jingle,” says Bert. “So she asked me what it won, and then I showed her.”

Bert, who purchased his winning ticket on PlayNow.com, says he was in shock when he discovered the win.

“We both reviewed it multiple times, to understand what it was and what it meant. I was very surprised and didn’t believe it. At first, I read through and saw it, and I had to double and triple-check.”

Bert says he doesn’t have any immediate plans for the winnings, though he admits it’s a life-changing amount of money that will take a weight off his shoulders for him and his family.

“For my wife, my son, and I, it’s a very comfortable feeling.”

Congratulations Bert! Wishing you and your family the best! Anyone Can Win, #YouCouldBeNext
