Abbotsford winner has ‘Extra’ lavish wedding and car on his mind after winning $500,000

It didn’t take long for Sikander Sekhon to go shopping after winning $500,000 playing the Extra on the September 16, 2016 Lotto Max draw.

“I bought a new car,” exclaimed Sekhon. “That was my celebration!”

Sekhon says he might even share the car with his son and he won’t stop there.

“I’m going to help my kids with their bills and education,” smiled Sekhon. “One day I’d like to throw a big and lavish wedding for my daughter!”

The winning ticket was purchased at the Chevron Town Pantry and Triple O’s Whatcom in Abbotsford.
