$500,000 Extra winner to turn dreams into reality

31/10/2017

Leslie Manton of Lake Cowichan is ready to pursue his dreams after winning $500,000 playing the Extra on the October 13, 2017 Lotto Max draw.

“We can do a lot with that money,” smiled Manton. “It opens a window of opportunities, and that it’s a new future for me and my wife.”

For Manton, this new future includes pursuing the things he’s most passionate about.

“I love to garden so I’m buying myself a greenhouse,” laughed Manton. “I plan to travel more, and go to England to watch my beloved Manchester United football club play!”

The winning ticket was purchased on PlayNow.com.
