‘Extra’ Dim Sum Is On Richmond Lotto Max Winner


Hing Nui Lau has never cried such happy tears as the moment she discovered her $500,000 Extra win from the February 9, 2018 Lotto Max draw.

Lau was enjoying her usual Saturday dim sum with family when she remembered that she had a Lotto Max ticket to check. What happened next was anything but routine…

“When I first scanned my ticket, I was confused by all the numbers and zeros,” said Lau. “I’ve played for years and buy tickets all the time hoping to win but I’ve never won anything this grand in my life!”

As her big win started to sink in, Lau cried tears of joy. While she has no immediate plans on how to spend the prize money, she is certain that some of it will go towards helping others, including select charities.

“I’m so incredibly happy,” said Lau. “Next time, dim sum will be on me.” 

Lau purchased the winning ticket at the Real Canadian Superstore in Richmond.
