Jason Ernst had to check his Keno ticket twice to make sure he was seeing it correctly after finding out he scored exactly $60,036 from a draw on February 27, 2021.
“I was sitting in my truck the following day and I decided to check my tickets on the BCLC Lotto! app,” he recalled. “When I first saw the win amount, I couldn’t believe it and had to check it two more times!”
The Victoria resident purchased the ticket from Fairway Market on Jacklin Road and has his own set of numbers that he enjoys playing with.
“I told my family and they didn’t believe me since we often joke with each other,” said Ernst.
On how it feels to win, Ernst says “It feels really good and surreal… it’s just a great feeling to be a winner!”
