Union Bay Electrician Gets Shocking Surprise After $500K Extra Win


Congratulations Rod!

Rod B. of Union Bay has been hard at work with home renovations, which is partly why he recently signed up for a account so he wouldn’t miss a draw with a lottery subscription. It’s a decision that led him to win an ‘Extra’ $500,000 in the Lotto Max draw on January 15, 2021.

“When I saw my account balance had $500,000 extra in it, I couldn’t believe it.”

“I usually buy them at a retailer, but we’ve been doing renovations on the house and so it’s possible that without the subscription I never would have bought a ticket for that day.” The day after the draw, Rod received an e-mail from PlayNow stating that he had won a prize but didn’t find out until later in the evening just how much it was.

“I was sitting down for dinner and thought I’d check. My wife was there with me and said she wasn’t going to believe it until I phoned BCLC.”

“$500,000 is an absolute game-changer, and for us to say we own our home now… It’s just amazing.”

Once it was confirmed, Rod says he and his wife started hugging and crying.

“We were just so overwhelmed with joy. The first thing we said was that we would no longer have to worry about our mortgage,” he shares.

In 2020, B.C. lottery players redeemed more than $32 million in prize-winning, Extra tickets. Say ‘Yes’ to the Extra for the chance to win up to $500,000. The Extra is available with Daily Grand, Lotto 6/49, Lotto Max, and BC/49 at any BCLC lottery retailer or on

Congratulations Rod! Wishing you and your family all the best. Anyone can win, #YouCouldBeNext
