Vernon woman is feeling ‘Extra’ happy after $500,000 win


Brianne Goyette is leaving on a jet plane to Maui and plans to celebrate in style after she matched all four Extra numbers on the January 30th Lotto Max draw.

The Vernon resident purchased her winning ticket at the Husky gas station in Golden while driving home from a weekend getaway in Banff. When Goyette went to check the ticket, she was in for a pleasant and unexpected surprise.

“When I looked up at the $500,000 on the screen I couldn’t believe what I was seeing,” Goyette recalled. “I was in shock and didn’t realize what was happening.”

With shaking hands, Goyette immediately called her husband to share the news.

“He said some things that I probably shouldn’t repeat,” she laughed. “On my way home, I went to my sister’s house to tell her I had won, but she didn’t believe me.”

Goyette plans to use her prize winnings to take a helicopter ride while on her trip to Maui. She also plans to invest the money and purchase a new car.
