A Prince George lottery winner has stepped forward.
Nancy Miners matched all four numbers on the Feb.19 Lotto Max extra draw to win the top prize of $500,000, B.C. Lottery Corporation said last week.
The 56-year-old elementary school teacher says she's already making plans to travel.
"My daughter, Meg, and I are going to Europe for a month," she said. "I've always wanted to go, so we're going to visit Ireland, Scotland and England."
Miners purchased her quick pick ticket at the Canadian Tire gas bar on Domano Boulevard. The odds of getting all four numbers are one in 3.8 million.
Kevin Bowser of Houston, meanwhile, picked up $9.5 million, his half of the $19-million top prize in the March 5 Lotto Max by getting all seven numbers right. The odds of doing that are one in 28.6 million.
