Burnaby Winner

Tom Brady wasn't the only big winner during Super Bowl LV, as Roderick Van Dorn scored a huge $89,807 prize from the February 7, 2021 BC 50/50 draw.

“I knew I was going to watch the game so I decided to buy a ticket,” he recalled. “I had my ticket and decided to scan it on my phone when I realized I had won. I feel ecstatic!”

The Burnaby resident purchased the ticket from Save-On-Foods Market Crossing. He says he enjoys playing lottery games while dreaming of early retirement.

Van Dorn added, “It’s nice to be a winner!” 

He plans to put his prize towards paying down his mortgage.
