Dawson Creek Couple Claim $1M Prize From Lotto 6/49’s Winning Weekend

01/05/2018

Kim and Susan Gamble from Dawson Creek were one of Lotto 6/49’s recent winning weekend winners! The lovely couple won the $1 million Guaranteed Prize from the Lotto 6/49 on April 28, 2018.

“We heard there was a winning ticket sold in Dawson Creek so I decided to check my ticket on the Lotto App,” said Kim. “As soon as I scanned it, I instantly froze up and was speechless.”

“I didn’t know what Kim was looking at so I popped my head over to see the app and instantly froze up too,” said Susan. “It was a speechless moment frozen in time. It’s hard to explain the shock but we just couldn’t believe our eyes.”

Reality is sinking in as Kim and Susan begin to share the news with more of their friends and family. The big win will go towards new home renovations and a trip to Hawaii.

Kim and Susan purchased the winning ticket at the 7-Eleven in Dawson Creek.

In addition to the $1 Million Guaranteed Prize, the SuperDraw promotion on April 28 featured 50 additional guaranteed prizes with seven prizes won in B.C. Two B.C. winners have come forward to claim their prizes. Congratulations to Angela Duhamel from Burnaby and Garry Nordhoj from North Vancouver for each winning $50,000 from the SuperDraw promotion.

Every time someone purchases a lottery ticket in B.C., it funds programs across the province. Learn more here.
