“He was pretty excited," she said in a press release from B.C. Lottery Corporation. "I haven’t told anyone else about winning since I still am in shock.”

On how she plans to celebrate, Berston said, “I want to stay safe and be safe, so I probably will not celebrate or do anything until it is safe to do so.”

The odds of winning the $200,000 are one in 250,000.
