$500,000 Prince George winner to have ‘Extra’ enjoyment in life

16/01/2017

Laura Bower of Prince George won $500,000 playing the Extra in the December 24, 2016 Lotto 6/49 draw.

Bower says the first thing she’s going to do with her winnings is pamper herself.

“I’m going to be smart with the money,” smiled Bower. “But not before I splurge on myself and buy a new wardrobe!”

Bower says the win will also allow her to pursue her passions.

“I want to live more comfortably,” said Bower. “I have the opportunity to pursue my dreams!”

The winning ticket was purchased at the London Drugs in Prince George.
