Grindrod woman talk of the town

Latest lottery winner walks away half a million dollars richer

Shelly Reglin has become a bit of a local celebrity in Grindrod after winning $500,000.

The big win comes from playing the Extra on the Sept. 1 Lotto Max draw.

“It’s a small town so basically everyone knows I won,” smiled Reglin.

“Everyone is really excited and happy for me!”

Reglin says her win still needs time to sink in, but she looks forward to figuring out what to do with her winnings.

“I still don’t really believe it,” she said.

“I might fix my house or get a new one, help out my kids, and maybe buy a motorhome to travel around B.C.”

Reglin’s winning ticket was purchased at the Red Basket Food Store in Enderby.

According to the B.C. Lottery Corporation, every time a lottery ticket is purchased, it funds programs across B.C.
