Terrace couple wins Lotto Max

Money to be put towards retirement and motorcycle trip

A Terrace couple has won the Lotto Max Extra draw, taking home the winning prize of $500,000.

Long-time Terrace residents Tammy and Herb Bahm matched all four Extra numbers in the Aug. 16 Lotto Max draw.

“I called Herb because he was at work and we both couldn’t believe it,” Tammy says in a press release. “It’s surreal, but it feels awesome.”

Tammy was at home using the BCLC Lotto app scanning a pack of lottery tickets she had purchased from Save-On-Foods when she saw the winning message pop up.

Besides using the money to put towards their retirement, they say they also plan on putting it towards their passion for motorcycles.

The Bahms plan on celebrating their win by riding their Harley Davidson Road King and Classic Heritage motorcycles to Nashville, Tennessee, as well as building their dream home-repair shops.

“We want to make investments that will help us out for the rest of our lives,” says Tammy.

So far in 2019, $117 million in Lotto Max prizes have been claimed in B.C.
