Fil-Canadian couple wins two lotteries in less than a year
COQUITLAM, British Columbia – A Filipino Canadian couple have won $1 million in two major lotteries in less than a year.
The shocked couple, Liezl Panganiban and Edgar Ebreo, won $500,000 on an Extra Lotto 6/49 draw back on Sept. 26, 2020. Recently, Ebreo bought a Set for Life scratch-it ticket at a 7-Eleven on Coast Meridian Road in Port Coquitlam.
Scratching the ticket together, the couple scored another win, for $675,000. “I started dancing,” Ebreo told Tricity News.
“It’s a special feeling,” he said, in a press release from the BC Lottery Corporation. “I can’t quite describe it.”
The couple is now planning a family trip close to home once travel restrictions are lifted. The money, they say, will be put toward paying off their mortgage, and down the line, a trip to Hawaii, their daughter’s favorite place to travel.
