Lantzville resident pinching herself after $500,000 ‘Extra’ win

29/03/2016

Denise Palmer had to pinch herself when she checked her Lotto Max ticket and discovered she won $500,000 on the Extra for the March 18, 2016 draw.

“I was in total disbelief because there were so many zeroes,” exclaimed Palmer. “I haven’t stopped shaking since I found out!”

The Lantzville resident says the win will allow her to retire sooner and support her two children.

“This will be beneficial for my family, and I’ve always dreamed of helping them out,” said Palmer.

Palmer is also looking forward to travelling to England for a long overdue visit.

“I haven’t been back since 1977, so it’s a good time to visit my friends and family,” smiled Palmer.

The winning ticket was purchased at the Nanaimo North Town Centre.
