Bounxong Sirimangkone bought a Lotto Max ticket to celebrate Canada Day, and was in disbelief after learning almost a year later that he won the Lotto Max Extra prize of $500,000 from the July 2, 2021 draw.
The Langley resident learned he won after checking the BCLC Lotto! App at home.
“I couldn’t believe I won. It was so exciting,” said Sirimangkone, who purchased the winning ticket at the Circle K on 88th Avenue in Langley.
He plans on using his winnings to travel and study.
