A Fort St. James man is $500,000 richer. Leonard Magnus won the $500,000 ‘Extra’ on the August 31st Daily Grand draw. He purchased the ticket at the Lakeside Pharmacy in Fort St James.
“I couldn’t believe it,” says Magnus. “I needed the store clerk to convince me I was the winner!”
He says his win is slowly sinking in, and that he is going to take his time making plans to spend it. “Winning the lottery definitely takes some pressure off me and my wife. I will put the money in the bank for now, and maybe splurge on a motorhome.”
Magnus picked up his winnings at the BCLC office in Kamloops today.
