Coquitlam Resident Wins $1 Million from Scratch & Win Ticket on Anniversary

February 14, 2023


Khalida Noori will always remember her 2023 wedding anniversary, as this was the day that she purchased a $10 Jackpot Multiplier Scratch & Win ticket that won the top prize of $1 million.  

“I came home that afternoon before picking up the kids,” recalled Noori. “I chose one ticket and scratched it and was in disbelief when I saw I had won, I was shaking!” 

The Coquitlam resident called her husband immediately and he didn’t believe her, even referencing the phone call as her “joke of the day.” Noori validated her ticket using the BCLC Lotto! App but just to be sure, Noori and her husband visited BCLC’s Vancouver office before believing the win was real. 

Noori is excited to fulfill her lifelong dream of purchasing a home for her family. 

On how it feels to win $1 million?

“I’m on top of the world. My life is completely changed by this win.”

Noori purchased the winning ticket at the Real Canadian Superstore in Metropolis at Metrotown in Burnaby. 

In 2022, Scratch & Win players redeemed more than $177 million in prize-winning tickets. 

Players can now check their lottery tickets anytime, anywhere on iOS or Android devices. Learn more about the BCLC Lotto! App here.
