Ingeborg Boucher was in complete disbelief when she checked her ticket from the BC/49 draw on June 1.
“I first checked my numbers at home in my kitchen,” the Abbotsford resident noted. “When I confirmed all six numbers it didn’t feel right, I was shaking!”
The reason for her shock is because she won the game’s top prize of a cool $2 million.
Once the reality of her win set in, she called her daughter and texted her son, but she was still having trouble believing her good fortune.
Just to be sure, Boucher double checked her ticket the next day at the lottery kiosk in the Abbotsford FreshCo, where a group of onlookers were cheering for her.
Boucher is moving soon, so the win comes at a great time to assist with that, and she also wants to share some of the prize money with her family.
But she will certainly be spending some of it on herself and trips to Bora Bora and Hawaii are on her radar.
As for how it feels to be a multi-millionaire after winning the lottery?
“Unbelievable! Lots of excitement, I just can’t believe it.”
The winning ticket was purchased at Super Save Gas on Fraser Highway in Abbotsford.
