VANCOUVER, B.C. – After matching all four Extra numbers on the June 21st, 2019 Lotto Max draw local, Kim Peck plans to purchase new horses.

“We were at a graduation dinner, and somebody said someone in Fort St. John had won $500,000, which a friend said is not a lot of money anymore, but I thought ‘It’s better than a kick in the butt,” said Peck

According to the BCLC, the 66-year-old winner is a hard-working husband, father and grandfather who is excited to use his winnings to retire, invest in some horses and get back into his hobby of rodeo roping.

“When I found out I had won, I told my wife and she was pretty happy! She didn’t believe me at first until I showed her my ticket.”

“(The win) means the bills will all be paid off and the house is ours,” Peck said. I haven’t done roping for three years now, and I would like to pick that back up. I have been working a lot in the past, so it will be nice to have more time off.”

British Columbians have claimed over $96 million in Lotto Max prizes so far in 2019 and the BCLC offers socially responsible gambling entertainment while generating income to benefit British Columbians.

The BCLC shares, play for fun, not to make money.
