‘Extra’ Winner Beats Cancer and Odds of Winning the Lottery

17/04/2018

If beating cancer this year wasn’t already remarkable enough, Brian Moore also beat the odds to win the $500,000 ‘Extra’ prize from the April 7, 2018 Lotto 6/49 draw.

Brian and Carolyn Moore from Parksville are so overjoyed with the news of their one in 3,764,376 win that they have hardly slept.

“It’s been very emotional for me,” explained Brian. “I beat cancer this year so this win is just a bonus on top of everything I’m grateful for.”

The Moores are planning to take a trip to Eastern Canada to spend time with their family, and have some fun completing experiences from their bucket list.

“I’ve always wanted to see the Northern Lights,” said Carolyn. “This win gives us the peace of mind to do the things we really want to do and live life to the fullest.”

The Moores purchased the winning ticket from the Real Canadian Superstore in Nanaimo.

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