British Columbia ticket holder wins CA$50 million Lotto Max jackpot

VANCOUVER, B.C. – A Vancouver man has won $50 million from the most recent Lotto Max draw and has yet to have his identity released by BC Lottery Corporation (BCLC). It is known that the man is in his 60’s and is still in shock after picking up a monster jackpot prize.

An employee at the store where the winning player had his ticket verified said that he is still a “regular customer” and was in a couple of days ago with his brother to buy some cigarettes.

Sunil Arora, a cashier a the store where the winning ticket was supposedly verified (BCLC make it clear that until they see the winning ticket the win remains unconfirmed) has been bombarded with questions from many Canadian newspapers and he said, “He checked his ticket on the checking machine.He couldn’t believe it so he came to me to recheck it.I feel so lucky that I sold such a big ticket.”

The winner is supposedly trying to keep calm and has not yet decided what to do with the money but is still going about his normal day to day life as he prepares to claim the prize money.
