Harley-Davidson Enthusiast Rides Off With $500,000 ‘Extra’ Win


Justin Gill from Chilliwack will soon ride off on a brand-new Harley-Davidson motorcycle, after winning $500,000 off the Extra on the Lotto 6/49 draw on April 21, 2018.

“As I handed my ticket over to the clerk, I remembered kidding with her that I had a winning ticket. When she checked it for me, I couldn’t believe it really was,” said Gill. “I’ve never been so excited about anything in my life.”

Gill took some time to think about his future plans before claiming his win. He plans to save some money but will celebrate with a trip to Six Flags, an amusement park, and buy a new Harley-Davidson motorcycle.

“When I told my boss I won the lottery, he ran out to buy a lottery ticket too,” said Gill. “Everyone has been so happy for me.”

The Shoppers Drug Mart in Aldergrove Village sold the winning Lotto 6/49 ticket.
