Lotto Max Winner Ready to Start ‘Extra’ Exciting New Chapter


Gordon and Mary Dunn from Coquitlam are happily planning their retirement, a new chapter in life that they have been looking forward to for some time. Having recently recovered from cancer, Gordon is ready for a fresh start and his ‘Extra’ $500,000 win from the Lotto Max draw on May 18, 2018 will help make the Dunns’ dreams come true.

“I had already planned to retire from work at the end of the month, so the timing of this win couldn’t have come at a better time,” said Gordon. “There are so many things I want to do and this big win will make it a lot easier to enjoy the most out of life.”

The Dunns have plans to spend more time with their family and upgrade their vacation trailer to a modular home.

“Gordon and I are excited to do some fun things together,” said Mary. “But honestly, I’m most excited about spending more time with all of our grandkids.”

The winning ticket was sold at Save-On-Foods located in Pinetree Village in Coquitlam.

This week’s record-breaking Lotto Max jackpot is $60 million with an estimated 50 additional MAXMILLION prizes of $1 million. Tickets can be purchased at any BCLC lottery retailer or on until 7:30 p.m. (PST) every Friday evening.
