Bryon Treasure is sure to include all of the ‘extra' stops during his next family road trip to Vancouver after winning a $500,000 Extra prize from the September 16, 2022 Lotto Max draw. 

The Kelowna resident — who enjoys road trips to Vancouver in his spare time — was at a friend’s house when he scanned his ticket on BCLC’s Lotto! App and was shocked to discover that he was $500,000 richer. 

“Holy,” he exclaimed the moment he realized he won. “I told my girlfriend first and she didn’t believe me.”

Treasure plans to splurge on an extra-nice hotel room during his next trip to Vancouver and looks forward to purchasing a home in the near future, thanks to his prize.

“I was thinking about my kids’ future when I bought the ticket and the ability to purchase a home,” he recalled. “I was very happy!” 

Treasure purchased his ticket at the Canco on Highway 33 East in Kelowna. 

So far in 2022, B.C. lottery players have redeemed more than $36 million in winnings from the Extra and more than $141 million from Lotto Max. Lotto Max is a nationwide lottery game drawn on Tuesdays and Fridays after 7:30 p.m. (PST).
