Kamloops lottery retailer receives second-largest seller’s prize ever

Sanjeev Aggerwal, has been selling lottery products at his family-run Kamloops business, McGoo’s Smokes N Stuff, for more than a decade.

He recently sold the winning $35-million Lotto Max ticket and had been presented with $35,000 dollars from BCLC as part of its sellers prize program.

Designed to engage retailers in the excitement of lottery winners, the program awards retailers who sell a winning ticket with a prize of over $10,000 with a percentage of the prize paid (the percentage varies depending on the prize amount).

“I found out I sold the winning lottery ticket and I had goosebumps then and now even,” Aggerwal recalled.

Aggerwal, who first started selling lottery products in 2011, said that he plans to gift some of his $35,000 prize to his family members as well as his employees, as sharing his prize with those closest to him is his top priority.

“We all won. If I win, my employees win… we are like a family,” Aggerwal exclaimed with joy.

More than 3,500 lottery retailers sell BCLC lottery products across BC, including convenience stores, grocery stores, drug stores, gas stations, pubs and shopping-mall kiosks.

Lottery retailers enter into Lottery Retailer Agreements with BCLC that set out roles, responsibilities and compensation, including the seller’s prize program.
