VANCOUVER, B.C. –  A single mother from Kelowna, B.C. last weekend won $1.5 million from a BC Lotteries scratch card, giving here financial security after she had been struggling for years.

According to the Britsh Columbia Lottery Commission (BCLC), the winner of the huge scratch card jackpot is called Jacqueline Davenport.

The winner said in statement released by BCLC on Friday 20th April,”I was just running out to get french fries and decided to stop to purchase a scratch-and-win ticket. I went home to eat and then I scratched my ticket. I matched the gem and I knew I had won something, and when I realized it was the jackpot, I came running out of my room. My daughter thought something was wrong and I had to reassure her everything was OK.”

Ms. Davenport is a single mother of two and had been trying and failing to make ends meet for over two years. She won’t have to worry about that now.
