Surrey Man Tells Wife about $500,000 Lotto Max Win While in Line for Vaccine!

Winner Roy G.


Congratulations Roy!

Roy G. of Surrey couldn't believe his eyes when he opened up the BCLC Lotto! App the morning after the June 8, 2021 Lotto Max draw and saw that he was $500,000 richer!

“I was shocked! I did not expect to see $500,000 in my account... I couldn't believe what I saw, and I had to ask myself if it was real.”

He was so excited about the win but kept his excitement to himself and waited to surprise his wife once the win was confirmed by PlayNow. As the couple were lining up for their vaccinations, Roy received the confirmation he had been waiting for. He couldn’t contain his excitement anymore and told his wife right there!

“I shared the great news to my wife, she was speechless at first, then was in disbelief..she said "is this a joke?". She wasn't going to believe me until she checked my account.”

The happy couple says they are not yet sure what they want to do with their newfound wealth. “Until now, winning $500,000 doesn't seem real. So we're trying to let our feelings sink in, and we are thinking about what we should do with our retirement blessings. We’ll make sure to put it to good use!”

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