Maureen Fulton says she was “in a daze” upon finding out she matched all four Extra numbers to win $500,000 from the Lotto 6/49 draw on Wednesday, November 18, 2020.
The Williams Lake resident purchased the ticket from Save-On-Foods on Oliver Street and was at Handi-Mart when she decided to check her tickets.
“I think I won $500,000!” Fulton said, after checking her ticket at the self-checker. “Out of the corner of my eye, I saw that it said I had won something. I scanned it again and was in such a daze, I can’t remember what crossed my mind at that moment.”
Fulton couldn’t wait to share the big news with her sister, and then her brother. “They were in disbelief,” she recalled.
On how it feels to win, Fulton says her prize “doesn’t feel real yet — so it feels surreal.”
The long-time lottery player has plans to share her winnings with her family, as well as treat herself to a new car.
