B.C. Lotto paid out $891 million in prizes in 2021, including record $70 million jackpot

British Columbians won a record $891 million in lottery prizes in 2021, just under half of that among players in the Lower Mainland and the Fraser Valley.

A total of 102 million winning tickets were sold this year by the B.C. Lottery Corp., also a record-breaking total.

Among the big winners was Christine Lauzon of Burnaby, who scored a $70 million jackpot on Sept. 28 to become the largest prizewinner in B.C. history.

“As 2021 wraps up, we’re celebrating all of our players and so many amazing, life-changing dreams that came true for lottery winners,” said BCLC interim president and CEO Lynda Cavanaugh in a news release Wednesday.

She thanked all players for helping the lottery corporation generate revenue that invests back into B.C. communities: “It’s a win-win-win.”

Here are some statistics on prizes won in the Lower Mainland and the Fraser Valley:

• $421 million in total prizes paid out;

• 48.8 million winning tickets sold;

• 36 grand-prize-winning tickets sold worth $500,000 or more; and

• 10.6 million free-play tickets won.
