Vancouver Island continues to see residents celebrating their good luck, with another resident winning big with Lotto 6/49.

Jeanette Perks bought her lottery ticket from Rexall on Douglas Street and was at home when she realized she had won big!

“I scanned it and thought, ‘wait a minute, this can’t be real,’” she recalled, describing how she felt when she won $47,849.70 from her November 27th, 2021 draw ticket.

“It was a blur; I was shaking and freaking out!”

Perks said she continued to re-scan her ticket over and over, in disbelief that she had won. She then quickly told her daughter who was also in shock.

When asked how she plans on using her prize, Perks said she plans on saving it. She celebrated her win over the holidays with close friends and family.
