Jessica and Jesse Chandler couldn’t believe that a Set for Life Scratch & Win ticket Jessica purchased while stopping for gas landed them the game’s top prize of $675,000.
“I was at home at the kitchen table and couldn’t believe it was real,” recalled Jessica, after she checked her ticket using the BCLC Lotto! App. “I immediately texted and called my husband, then my mom!”
The Chilliwack couple plans to bring its kids on a vacation to Disneyland and save for a home.
“We also never had a honeymoon when we got married, so maybe we will do that and renew our vows sometime down the road,” said Jessica.
On how it feels to win?
“Breathtaking — a miracle,” said Jessica.
Jessica purchased the winning ticket at Circle K on First Avenue and Young Road in Chilliwack.
So far in 2023, B.C. lottery players redeemed more than $4 million in Set for Life prizes.
