Aldergrove resident scores with set for life ticket

Discovers he won the top prize of $675,000 a week after buying winning ticket

Aldergrove resident Jori Black was a winner for a week without knowing it.

He’s made a habit of buy a Lotto Max and couple of Set For Life tickets every Friday.

Black was in no hurry to test his scratch and win ticket purchase, which sat on his desk for about a week before he got around to checking it.

Then, he saw the “CASH 25 YEARS” message.

He’d won the top prize of $675,000.

“I immediately went into shock,” Black said.

The money will allow the Black family to buy their first home.

“I also have my eye on some toys, such as a new car and possibly a boat,” Black said.

The winning ticket was purchased at the Otter Co-op in Langley.

Set for Life offers a top prize of $1,000 a week for 25 years.

The 15th anniversary special edition also offers 15 prizes of $100,000.
