‘Extra’ Winner Will Build New Home

20/03/2018

Tappen resident Terry Sigurdson renovates homes for a living and, thanks to his Extra $500,000 win, his next big project could be his very own home.

Sigurdson said ‘yes’ to the Extra, landing him a $500,000 win from the Lotto 6/49 draw on March 14, 2018.

“There has been buzz around town about a winning ticket sold in the area so I decided I would check my ticket,” said Sigurdson. “Lo and behold, that winning ticket was actually mine!”

Sigurdson enjoys picking out his own numbers and is often known to use birthdays in his selection.

“I think I will build myself a new house with the winnings,” said Sigurdson.

Sigurdson purchased his winning ticket at Little Shuswap Lake Gas located in Chase.

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