“Everyone has a bucket list, this will allow us to do some of those things”, said Marvin Mitchell who won $500,000 after matching all four Extra numbers in the September 18, 2019 Lotto 6/49 draw.

The Coquitlam resident was at the gas station when he remembered he had an unchecked ticket. “I scanned it, thinking to myself it would be a dollar or something,” said Mitchell, who was speechless when he found out he had the winning ticket. 

On what winning the lottery will mean for him and his family, Mitchell said he has family all across North America and winning the lottery will enable him to see them more often.
