Jerome Moore

A trip to Prince George paid off handsomely for Penticton man Jerome Moore.

He was in B.C.’s northern capital for a work trip this past summer, when he bought a Lotto 6/49 ticket for the Aug. 26 draw.

After returning to Penticton, Moore learned a winning ticket had been sold in the Prince George area. He scanned his ticket at home using the BCLC Lotto! App and found out he had won $92,000.

“The rest of my household, my wife and kids, were sleeping,” Moore said in a press release issued Oct. 9 by the B.C. Lottery Corporation.

Once his wife woke up, Moore had her scan the tickets to re-create the surprise.

“When she did, she was so excited she started to freak out,” said Moore.

He plans to use his prize for house renovations.
