Kamloops Winner

Noreen Rozek says she always dreams of travelling more and, after winning the Lotto 6/49 Guaranteed $100,000 prize from the March 27, 2021 draw, she looks forward to packing her suitcase once it’s safe to do so. 

The Kamloops resident purchased the ticket from Real Canadian Superstore on Columbia Street West and found out the exciting news upon checking her numbers on

“I noticed there was a Guaranteed prize won in Kamloops so I looked down and was shocked and excited,” she recalled. “I walked away to sit and have a cup of coffee before going back to the computer to double check!”

After waiting a few days for reality to sink in, Rozek shared the news with her children and grandchildren. 

“They were just as excited as me. My grandchildren also mentioned it means I can buy them better birthday gifts,” she recalled, laughing.

Rozek plans to put her prize towards a trip to New Zealand or Australia once she can travel again and says being a winner is “unbelievable!”
