Satwant Aujla of Abbotsford wins $1 million


SATWANT Aujla of Abbotsford was rendered speechless after learning she won the Guaranteed Prize of $1 million from the January 25 Lotto 6/49 draw, says the BCLC said on Monday in a press release.

“I was at Freshco [in Abbotsford] when I found out I won,” recalled Aujla, who was in such disbelief she took her ticket to two gas stations the next day to double check. “I put [the ticket] in my pocket and got out of there when I saw the winning amount.”

The Abbotsford resident was most excited to share the news with her son, who was “blown away.”

On how it feels to win $1 million?

“This win gives me some peace and comfort. I always wanted to buy my son a house if I won.”

Aujla purchased the winning ticket at the Chevron gas station on South Fraser Way in Abbotsford.

A few days earlier, on March 2, the BCLC announced that a Surrey couple, Swarn and Harbhajan Purba, had an ‘extra’ exciting day after winning the $500,000 Extra prize from the February 8 Lotto 6/49 draw.
