Lawn bowler scores $500K on Lotto Max

Mary Clark is used to getting strikes, having won gold in lawn bowling at the 1998 BC Summer Games and the 2001 55+ BC Games.

During the July 28, 2020 Lotto Max draw the Maple Ridge resident struck again, this time scoring a $500,000 Maxmillions prize.

Clark matched all 12 numbers to secure the third of 13 Maxmillions prizes drawn that night; she splits the $1-million prize with a second ticket purchased in Nanaimo, which matched the same set of winning numbers: 3 5 10 34 36 38 and 43. Four tickets purchased in B.C. matched winning numbers during the July 28, Lotto Max draw — Clark was checking her ticket on her computer at home when she realized she had one of them.

“I was just flummoxed,” Clark said. “I saw the numbers and I thought: am I seeing right?”

Clark claimed her prize using BCLC’s temporary alternate prize-claim process,saying it was “awesome” to receive her win while staying safe at home. Clark and her husband decided to buy a new Chevrolet Equinox with the prize and she also has her eye on some new kitchen appliances.

“I plan on spending the money wisely,” she said. “I have been told by my husband that I am frugal.”
