Vancouver woman feeling ‘Extra’ excited after $500,000 win

22/09/2016

To say Thi Loan Nguyen was excited about winning the lottery is an understatement.

“When I saw the amount on the ticket checker I thought, ‘wow that’s a lot’,” recalled Nguyen. “I was so excited I couldn’t think about anything but my ticket!”

Nguyen won $500,000 by playing the Extra on the September 10, 2016 Lotto 6/49 draw.

The Vancouver resident plans on celebrating with her children as soon as she takes her cheque to the bank.

“My three children are all really happy for me,” smiled Nguyen. “I can’t wait to take them out to a fancy dinner.”

Nguyen also plans on crossing off a few things off her wish list, which includes a new house and a vacation to Italy or France.

The winning ticket was purchased at the Safeway on East Broadway in Vancouver.

BCLC offers socially responsible gambling entertainment while generating income to benefit all British Columbians. Every time a lottery ticket is purchased in B.C., it funds programs across the province. Learn more here.
