$100,000 Keno winner from Fort Nelson is ‘feeling good’07/08/2014
Margaret Capot-Blanc of Fort Nelson experienced the feeling of winning the lottery, not once, but twice.
On July 24, 2014, Capot-Blanc’s husband purchased her a quick pick Keno ticket as a gift, in which she matched 10/10 numbers to win $100,020.
“When I finally checked my ticket I was told that I had won over $100,000 and I automatically felt faint,” exclaimed Capot-Blanc. “When I left the store after having checked my ticket I remember just sitting in my truck in disbelief. I couldn’t drive right away as I was still feeling shaky.”
This is the second time Capot-Blanc has won big. In April she cashed in $15,000 on another Keno quick-pick ticket.
“I had told my husband that I had a feeling I was going to win something,” she recalls. “The feeling lasted a while and that is why he purchased a Keno ticket for me.”
Capot-Blanc says she has many ideas planned for this win, one of which will be purchasing a new trailer.
The July 24, 2014 Keno ticket was purchased at the Fort Nelson IDA Pharmacy.
Keno is a B.C.-only lottery game drawn every four minutes. Players match up to 10 numbers from 20 numbers drawn from a field of 80 to win.
