Wife is ‘Extra’ right about lottery win


‘Wife is right’, or in the case of Victor and Beverly Chingee – ‘Extra’ right!  The couple from McLeod Lake are $500,000 richer after winning the Extra on their Lotto 6/49 and BC/49 ticket for the September 16, 2017 draw.

The Chingee’s were at the mall when Beverly decided to check their ticket at the lottery retail kiosk. When the machine froze and the retailer confirmed that they had won big, Beverly shouted in shock for Victor to come see for himself.

“Without my glasses it was hard to see what was going on,” grinned Victor “But, I trust Beverly completely because she’s usually right! This is very exciting for us!”

The Chingee’s have plans to renovate their home, buy a new car and save the money in the bank.

The winning ticket was purchased at MacKenzie Mall Lottery Ticket Centre in MacKenzie.

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