Ft. St. James, B.C. –  It  took some convincing for  a Fort St. James man to believe what  he was seeing.

Leonard Magnus of Fort St. James won the $500,000 Extra on the August 31, 2017 Daily Grand draw.

“I heard the winning jingle when I checked my ticket and saw the screen flash $500,000″ says Magnus.  II couldn’t  believe it. I needed the store clerk to convince me I was the winner.”

Magnus says his win is slowly sinking in, and that he’s going to take his time before making any big plans with his money.

“Winning the lottery definitely takes some pressure off me and my wife” says  Magnus. “I will put the money in the bank for now, and maybe splurge on a motorhome.”

The winning ticket was purchased at Lakeside Pharmacy in Fort St. James.

Good for him. Nice to see someone in this area win.

He looks like my long lost brother, it may be time to get reacquainted. :)

Congrats! A person may not win with a ticket, but you can’t win without one!
Nice to see.
