A diamond-studded lottery win

A fondness for jewelry has translated into a sparkling future for a Surrey woman.

Lisa Marie Page said she played random scratch-and-win tickets occasionally, but bought her latest ticket because of its gem-inspired name.

“I picked this one up because I love jewelry and this ticket is named Diamond Payout,” said Page. “So I thought I’d grab it and it worked out pretty well for me.”

Indeed, she won $1 million, which she plans to use to buy a condominium and travel the world.

“I have never been anywhere in my life. I am definitely going on a nice vacation. I don’t know where but I’ll find some place nice,” she said.

She purchased the ticket in Williams Lake.
