BC woman to share $1M lotto prize with family, but not before buying herself a new Harley

Jean Wilson describes the feeling of winning the lottery as “surreal” and says it will provide some financial relief.

The Pitt Meadows resident became an instant millionaire when she secured a $1-million Guaranteed Prize from the Lotto 6/49 draw on Nov. 23.

“When I checked my PlayNow.com account I [thought] I had won $1,” recalled Wilson.

“I didn't realize it said ‘Gold Ball winner of $1 million’ and thought it was just an advertisement and had to call a customer service rep to make sure it was true.”

She was most excited to share the life-changing news with her two daughters and plans on waiting until a larger family celebration at Christmas to tell her grandchildren.

Wilson plans to share some of her large windfall with her family, but also has her eyes set a couple treats for herself.

That includes a new Harley Davidson motorcycle and a new vehicle as well.
