Back to news


A couple from British Columbia are celebrating a big $500,000 Lotto 649 Extra prize, just months after the husband beat cancer.Brian and Carolyn Moore, from Parksville in British Columbia, Canada, won their $500,000 Lotto 649 Extra prize in the drawing on April 7th, and they have plenty more to celebrate as well, because Mr Moore beat cancer earlier this year as well. According to the British Columbia Lottery Corporation, Mr Moore said that the Lotto 649 win was a bonus on top of everything else he has had to celebrate recently. A couple from western Australia won $100,000 on the Ultimate Lifestyle Lottery when they hadn’t much else to celebrate after the husband had been diagnosed with cancer, while a grandmother from West London in England won £50,000 on the Postcode Lottery just after being diagnosed with an auto-immune condition.“It’s been very emotional for me,” the Lotto 649 winner said. “I beat cancer this year so this win is just a bonus on top of everything I’m grateful for.” The couple said that the $500,000 Lotto 649 Extra prize will help them to check some of their goals off their bucket list, and they also hope to be able to spend some more time with family. Recently a couple from British Columbia were planning a brand new home after a Lotto 649 win, and another BC lottery winner took home $1 million on the Lotto Max and said he hoped to spend more time with his family.The British Columbia Lottery Corporation said that Mr and Mrs Moore are already planning a trip to Eastern Canada in order to spend time with family on the other side of the country, and some of the experiences on their bucket list will also be completed while they take their trip. Mrs Moore explained that their win will enable them to really appreciate their lives, especially since Mr Moore has a lot more of it left.“I’ve always wanted to see the Northern Lights,” she told BC Lottery officials. “This win gives us the peace of mind to do the things we really want to do and live life to the fullest.” A man from Hanmer in Ontario was hoping to check some items off his bucket list thanks to a $100,000 Lotto 649 windfall. The Lotto 649 Extra winner bought their winnings ticket from the Real Canadian Superstore in Nanaimo, BC.Get ready for your windfall and play online with us at
