TALJINDER Khangura of Surrey was ‘extra’ excited to video call her daughter after winning the $500,000 Extra prize from the April 12 Lotto 6/49 draw, says BCLC.

As soon as she learned she won, Khangura video called her daughter and then told the rest of her family.

“Everyone was so happy!”

The Surrey resident purchased and validated the winning ticket at the lottery kiosk at Scottsdale Centre in Delta.

“I asked Tony [my lottery retailer] if he can check my two tickets,” recalled Khangura. “One was not a winner, and the other was a winner, then I saw the prize amount!”

Khangura plans to bring her family to Mexico for a vacation.

“This has been a big financial assistance. This will make me less stressed.”
