They bought the ticket while on a coffee run! 💸
These Lotto Max winners in B.C. got a whole lot more than just caffeine after purchasing a ticket during their coffee run and finding out they won a sweet $500,000.
Matthew Saari and Glenn Lamb from Kelowna, B.C., bought their lucky winning ticket from a One Stop on Bernard Ave. for the October 7 Lotto Max draw.
Saari found out they had won while he was in a drive-thru and checked the ticket on the BCLC Lotto! App.
"This will open a few more doors for my family and will create a nice little nest egg for our future," Saari said.
Lamb was in the middle of a round of golf when he learned about the big win and said, "there goes my golf game."
The pair first told their wives about the major winnings and both had a hard time believing them. Saari's wife actually thought he was lying and had to confirm the winnings on the ticket for herself.
The co-workers are both excited to help out their families and spend a little more time on their hobbies.
“We're very happy,” Saari said.
These two co-workers weren't the only lucky lotto winners in B.C., a few others have been able to claim winnings just as big.
Another Lotto Max winner in B.C. won $500,000 and could not believe his eyes when he checked his ticket.
In 2022, Lotto Max players in B.C. won a combined total of over $163 million.
