Vancouverite Drives Away with $675K Set for Life Prize

Vancouver Winner

A longtime dream of cruising around town in an electric vehicle is now a reality for Van Nam Nguyen after the Vancouverite drove away with $675,000 playing Set for Life recently.

“I told my sister that I finally had the money to buy a Tesla and she thought that I was kidding,” Nguyen said. 

Nguyen purchased the ticket at a Mobil Gas Station Mart on Grandview Highway in Vancouver and scratched it at home.

“I saw two cash symbols come up and started to get excited and then I saw the third one,” he recalled. “I couldn’t believe it – I was very excited and happy.”

In addition to his new vehicle, Nguyen plans to gift some of his prize to his family and perhaps put a down payment on a new home. 

“I always dreamt that I could…win – and I did!”

In 2021, B.C. lottery players have so far redeemed more than $12 million in Set for Life prizes. Anyone can win and #YouCouldBeNext. Watch some amazing lottery winner stories at
