“I was at the grocery store and Sandra went shopping when I decided I should check my tickets,” William said. “When it said we won, I thought there was a glitch and had to get Sandra to check it again.” 

The winning ticket was purchased at the lottery ticket centre in Northills Centre in North Kamloops. Sandra and William plan to do more to celebrate their 50th wedding anniversary now that they have extra cash.

Sandra said they are also planning a trip to Hawaii to visit family and a jaunt to Las Vegas for some sporting events.

They may not have ended up being so lucky had it not been for a recent change-up in their lotto strategy.

“We always enjoy buying the lotto because it goes to a good cause, but we only started buying the Extra three months ago because we kept hearing of people winning on the extra numbers,” Williams said.
