Jennifer Cole says the decision to set up a lottery subscription on BCLC’s PlayNow.com in May was one of the best of her life. After all, she won a life-changing $31-million jackpot just months later from the July 8, 2022, Lotto Max draw.
“I heard that the jackpot was won on PlayNow.com, so I logged on to my account,” recalled Cole of the moment she found out that she won the largest lottery prize ever awarded in B.C. from a ticket purchased on PlayNow.com.
“When I saw the number in my account, it was a lot more than expected.”
The West Kelowna resident first told her family of the win.
“My family initially thought it was a smaller amount, but once they woke up, I told them I won the jackpot. They were very excited!”
B.C.’s newest multimillionaire is looking forward to retiring and spending more time with family.
“I plan on taking some time to decide what’s next but am definitely looking forward to traveling.”
Cole claimed her $31-million jackpot on August 12, 2022, at BCLC’s Kamloops head office.
