No sooner had Lisa Tsang stepped forward to collect $1 million in the Aug. 22 Lotto 6/49 draw, than another Richmond lottery winner was confirmed.
On Thursday, the BC Lottery Corporation announced Tsang–a frequent 6/49 player–planned to pay off her mortgage with her winnings.
Then on Friday, BCLC revealed that Howard Hepworth started doing the happy dance after learning he’d won $50,000 on a Super Crossword Scratch & Win ticket.
Hepworth was waiting to pick up his wife from work when he decided to to pop into Seafair Smoke & Mixer, located on No. 1 Road, to purchase a few “scratchies.”
“I could not believe what I saw,” he said. “I called the store owner over to verify what I was seeing. She told me to sign my ticket, and I said I was too shaky to sign it.”
Describing the experience of winning as “amazing,” Hepworth says he plans to put his prize winnings toward a new car.
