Coquitlam woman planning to live ‘Extra’ comfortably after winning $500,000


Since Bernice Wilson of Coquitlam won the $500,000 Extra on the November 15, 2017 BC/49 draw, she’s been looking forward to enjoying the comforts of life.

“I’m still stunned by the win,” laughed Wilson. “This will definitely make things a lot more comfortable for me and my husband.”

But before she gets comfy, Wilson plans to tell her loved ones about the big win.

“Only my husband knows I’ve won,” smiled Wilson. “I’m really anxious to tell my children about this! They are going to be so excited!”

The winning ticket was purchased at the Lougheed Mall Lottery Ticket Centre in Burnaby. 

Every time a lottery ticket is purchased in B.C., it funds programs across the province. Learn more here.
