Some people simply have all the luck.
That could definitely be said about Liezl Panganiban and Edgar Ebreo, a Coquitlam couple celebrating their second major lottery win in less than a year.
“We feel really blessed and very thankful to be winners,” said Panganiban, with Ebreo adding that “it’s a special feeling. I can’t quite describe it.”
Their most recent win of $675,000 came from a Set for Life scratch & win ticket, which follows up their $500,000 win playing the Extra from the Sept. 26, 2020 Lotto 6/49 draw.
“When I saw the three cash symbols, I couldn't believe it, so I showed Edgar,” Panganiban said.
Ebreo said he “started dancing” when he found out.
Once it’s safe to do so, the second-time grand-prize winners are planning a family celebration close to home.
They’ll also be putting some of their prize money towards paying off their mortgage and a future trip to Hawaii, which is their daughter’s favourite travel destination.
Ebreo purchased the winning ticket from the 7-Eleven on Coast Meridian Road in Port Coquitlam, with Panganiban scratching it when they got home.
