A Penticton man travelling in the Prince George area made a lucky purchase while on the road recently.

Jerome Moore says he felt “extremely grateful” after discovering he won $92,000 in the Aug. 26 Lotto 6/49 draw.

Moore purchased the winning ticket from Hart Highway Husky in Prince George, while on a work trip but it wasn’t until he got home that he saw a winning ticket had been purchased in the Prince George area.

He scanned his ticket using the BCLC lotto app and realized the winning ticket was his.

“The rest of my household, my wife and kids, were sleeping,” Moore said. “I wanted to surprise them and didn’t say anything. I had my wife scan the tickets on my Lotto! app and left the winning ticket for her to scan last. When she did, she was so excited she started to freak out.”

Moore plans to use the winnings for house renovations.
