Set For Life
Two years ago, Ken Jorgensen had a dream that he would win the lottery when he turned 60. This year, that dream turned into reality when the Powell River resident won one of the top prizes for Set for Life, choosing a $675,000 lump-sum payment, just six days after his 60th birthday.
Congratulations Arlana and James!
Arlana Morse and James McLauchlan, both bus drivers in the Lower Mainland, say their road to retirement will be a lot smoother thanks to matching all 10 numbers in the Lotto 6/49 draw held August 24, 2019 to win the $1 million Guaranteed Prize.
Adrien Malebranche’s daily Vancouver bus ride turned into a trip to remember when he checked the winning numbers from BC/49’s September 4, 2019 draw. He said he “wanted to scream” when he saw that he had matched all six numbers to win the $2 million jackpot.
Congratulations Jesse and Teresa!
B.C.’s newest millionaires, Jesse Logan and Teresa Winters Day, both from Nanaimo, said they were “ecstatic” and both “almost fainted” upon realizing they had won $5 million after matching all six numbers in the August 21, 2019 Lotto 6/49 draw.
An ordinary trip to the mall to buy sippy cups turned into a life-changing experience for Lea Turner, when she realized she won $500,000. Matching all four Extra numbers in the September 10, 2019 Lotto Max draw, the Surrey resident said she was “in disbelief”.
Congratulations Martha and Susan!
Susan H. and Martha M. have been best friends for over 50 years. The two decided to “go in on” a BC/49 ticket together last week, and soon discovered they were $2 million richer after matching all six numbers on their BC/49 ticket from the August 17, 2019 draw.
Set For Life
Originally from Ontario and relocating to Nanoose Bay in BC, Patrick S. is the latest Scratch & Win Set for Life winner. While Patrick doesn't have any current plans to use his new found winnings, we anticipate he'll continue to garden and build sail boats for fun.
Congratulations Caroline and Christian!
Christian plays the lottery frequently in his home town of São Paulo, Brazil, but never expected to win while visiting his sister Caroline in Vancouver. After matching all four Extra numbers in the August 2, 2019 Lotto Max draw, Caroline and Christian are a cool $500,000 richer.

When Vancouver’s David scanned the barcode on his Set for Life ticket using the BCLC Lotto App, he had to do a double take after seeing the winning message pop-up that he’d won $675,000.
