Leisurely Sunday Morning Turns into $75,000 Surprise for Vancouver BC/49 Player

August 17, 2021


Jonathan Head was enjoying his Sunday morning coffee when he checked his BC/49 tickets for the June 5, 2021 draw and was shocked to learn that he matched five out of six numbers, plus the bonus number, to win $75,000.

“It was Sunday morning and I was checking the draws on the computer, while I was enjoying a coffee, when I saw two of the numbers I had chosen [were drawn],” said Head.

Head purchased the winning ticket at the News Room in Kerrisdale and selected his own numbers.

On his plans for his winnings, the Vancouver retiree said he plans to “save and spend wisely”.
