Kelowna resident is ‘Extra’ elated after $500,000 win

18/06/2015

Kelowna resident Michelle Schulte is planning a party to celebrate her $500,000 win on the Lotto Max Extra draw through PlayNow.com. Schulte couldn’t believe her eyes after discovering she had matched all four Extra numbers on the June 12, 2015 Lotto Max draw.

Schulte says she would often dream about winning the lottery but would rarely buy tickets. That all changed several few weeks ago when her husband suggested they purchase tickets through PlayNow.com; after purchasing the second round of tickets, they won big.

It was bright and early on Saturday morning when Schulte received the email notification from PlayNow.com saying she had won a prize.

“I followed the link and I didn’t quite understand or believe it. I had to ask my son if this was real,” recalled Schulte.

Once the family confirmed they did in fact win $500,000 Schulte says their excitement could not be contained.

“We all jumped up and down and started calling our family and friends to let them know this windfall had come our way,” smiled Schulte. “The whole experience has been amazing.”

Schulte describes the win as life changing and says the first purchase will likely be a family event such as a helicopter adventure. The rest of the money will go toward her future retirement. The winning ticket was purchased on PlayNow.com.

Say ‘Yes’ to the Extra for the chance to win up to $500,000. Extra is available with Lotto 6/49, Lotto Max, and BC/49 at any BCLC lottery retailer or at PlayNow.com.
