A Lottery Winner In BC Has A Skip In Her Step After Landing The $75K Prize In Quality Foods
It was an "unbelievable" win!
A lotto winner in B.C. has a skip in her step after a lottery win.
Shirley Burke won $75,000 from a BC/49 ticket in a draw on October 27. Burke, from Comox, B.C., purchased the winning ticket from a Quality Foods grocery store on Guthrie Road.
Burke was at the store when she found out that she won the incredible prize, according to the British Columbia Lottery Corporation.
"I found out I won and couldn’t believe it," she said.
Becoming $75,000 richer all of a sudden would be a surprise for anyone. Burke said that her first thought was: "What am I going to do with this win?”
She told BCLC that she still hasn't decided on what to do with the prize money, although she does plan on investing some of it.
When asked how it felt to win the money, Burke said that it was "unbelievable."
After a win like that, it's safe to say that we would all have a skip in our step!
The luck in B.C. is strong, with multiple winners across the province claiming some big prizes recently.
