Golden Stop Over for Great-Grandmother from Saskatchewan

Darpan News Desk, 21 Feb, 2020

    Lillian Williamson’s decision to stop for gas in Golden, B.C., en route to visit her new great-grandson in Kelowna, is filling her with excitement after she matched all four numbers playing the Extra on Saturday’s Lotto 6/49 draw, for a $500,000 golden win.


    “I feel numb,” Lillian said from BCLC’s Kamloops prize claim office. “It’s only my second time visiting B.C.”


    It’s an unforgettable trip for the resident of Regina, Sask., who purchased the ticket at the Golden Fas Gas station, and plays Lotto 6/49 and Lotto Max regularly.

     

    Lillian said some of her top priorities for the unexpected prize are sharing it with her 12 grand and great-grandchildren and planning a vacation outside of Canada — for the first time in her life.


    “I’ve always dreamed I could go to the Grand Ole Opry in Nashville,” she said. “The first thing I will have to do is renew my passport.”
