Grand Forks Woman Shakes-it-Up After Winning BC 50/50 Ticket


Grand Forks Winner

Diana Verigin couldn’t believe her eyes upon scanning her BC 50/50 ticket and realizing she landed exactly $55,896.50 from a draw on February 7, 2021.

“I was at home after coming back from a walk with my husband,” she recalled. “I scanned the ticket using the BCLC Lotto! app on my iPad and saw I won. I shook the iPad to make sure it was real and had to scan it again, just to make sure!” 

The Grand Forks resident purchased the ticket from Canco on Central Avenue.

Verigin has a few plans for her prize, including putting some towards a new pair of boots for herself, a bike and a PlayStation for her husband, and will also share some with her kids. 

On how it feels to be a winner, Verigin says “It feels great! It’s very exciting!”
