$675,000 winner is ‘Set for Life’ romantically


When Minsu Park of Vancouver won $675,000 playing Set for Life, he immediately thought of the two most important women in his life.

“I called my mom right away,” recalled Park. “I told her I won the lottery and that I would pay her back for all she’s done for me.”

With his sights set on happily ever after, Park’s next call was to his girlfriend.

“It was a nice feeling telling her I won,” smiled Park. “I am so in love with her. I’m going to use my winnings to buy her a diamond and propose!”

The winning Set for Life ticket was purchased at the Freshco Food Mart on Georgia Street in Vancouver.
