Fil-Canadian Couple Wins Twice in Lottery

Winning in the lottery is already a good fortune in itself but what kind of luck is it when you win in another lottery all within the same year?

Sounds unbelievable? Well, think again because this is exactly what happened to Filipino-Canadian couple, Liezl Panganiban and Edgar Ebreo.

They first won $500,000 having played the Extra during the Lotto 6/49 draw last September. Just seven months later, they won again, this time bagging $675,000 after playing Set for Life.

In their interview with BC Lottery Corporation, the couple shared that Ebreo bought the Set for Life ticket from a 7-Eleven Store. Panganiban said they felt very thankful and blessed to be the winners while Ebreo added that he can’t quite describe the special feeling it gave them.

Panganiban further shared that upon seeing the three cash symbols, she just couldn’t quite believe it while Ebreo revealed that he started dancing after his wife showed him their scratched card.

When asked what they were going to do with their prize money, the couple readily answered that they will pay off their mortgage and go on a family trip to Hawaii.
