Grindrod woman is talk of the town after $500,000 Extra win

12/09/2017

Shelly Reglin has become a bit of a local celebrity in Grindrod after winning $500,000 playing the Extra on the September 1, 2017 Lotto Max draw.

“It’s a small town so basically everyone knows I won,” smiled Reglin. “Everyone is really excited and happy for me!”

Reglin says her win still needs time to sink in, and that she looks forward to figuring out what to do with her winnings.   

“I still don’t really believe it,” laughed Reglin. “I might fix my house or get a new one, help out my kids, and maybe buy a motorhome to travel around B.C.”

The winning ticket was purchased at the Red Basket Food Store in Enderby. 

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