Courtenay man is ‘Extra’ happy after winning big20/07/2017
Barry Manning of Courtenay is $500,000 richer and happier after winning the Extra on the June 21, 2017 Lotto 6/49 and BC/49 draws.
Manning routinely goes to the store to pick up his weekly household items, along with his $20 Mega Pack that includes a Lotto 6/49 and BC/49 ticket plus the Extra. However, his last visit to the store was anything but routine.
“I couldn’t believe that I won $500,000. I had to check it three times!” laughed Manning.
Manning has plans to share his winnings with his family and hopes to do some traveling with his wife.
“I always dream about winning big,” exclaimed Manning. “Travel has always been on my list and I can do more of that now!”
The winning ticket was purchased at Walmart on Cliff Avenue in Courtenay.
