Margaret Prince says she was mind blown upon realizing she matched 5/6+ numbers to land $75,000 from the BC/49 draw on February 24, 2021.
The Vernon resident purchased the ticket from 7-Eleven on 32nd Street and was having coffee with a friend when she had a jolt of energy and decided to purchase a spur of the moment Mini Dip Pack.
“I was shopping and knew I forgot to check my ticket so I stopped at a retailer,” said Prince. “The retailer told me someone had won $75,000 in Vernon so I checked my ticket and the amount popped up. I was mind blown and shocked!”
Prince shared the amazing news with her family as well as a few co-workers and said she plans to use her little windfall to “splurge” on a car for herself.
