Vancouver Island man in shock after $25K Keno win

Shock is the word that describes one Vancouver Island man’s feelings following a winning Keno draw earlier this year.

Joseph Lambert, a resident of Bowser on Vancouver Island, said he had to check his ticket multiple times after realizing he had won $25,070 from a BC Lotto Corporation (BCLC) Keno draw on February 28, 2021.

Lambert lives approximately 21 kilometres north of Qualicum Beach, however, he purchased the Keno ticket from the Crown and Anchor Roadhouse Pub on Island Highway West in Qualicum Beach.

It was shortly after purchasing the ticket, while he was still in the pub, that he discovered he had won.

“I was sitting there watching the board…all of the numbers started to light up,” he recalled. “At first I couldn’t believe it. I had to keep checking the ticket over and over again!”

According to the BCLC Lambert plans to treat his daughter to a spa day with some of his prize money.

The Bowser man also adds that “it feels good to be a winner, it’s pretty exciting!”
