$16.7 million Lotto 6/49 win is icing on the cake for Kelowna man
Kelowna resident Clifford B. can say he has won something significant after winning the $16.7 million jackpot on the November 22, 2017 Lotto 6/49 draw.
Clifford and his wife remain in a bit of a daze after his habit of buying a ticket each time he visits the mall paid off.
"At first I thought it said $1,600. Then I looked again and I thought, oh wow, I won $16,000," recalled Clifford. "Then the clerk at the kiosk said, 'you didn't win $16,000... you won $16 million!'"
The couple will share their prize money with their close-knit family, including their children and grandchildren. They intend to do some travelling and go on a cruise following the Christmas holidays.
"We have a close knit family," beamed Clifford. "With Christmas around the corner, this lottery win is icing on the cake for me!"
The winning ticket was purchased at the Orchard Park Shopping Centre in Kelowna.
Lotto 6/49 can be played at all Lotto retailers and Lotto Express locations or online at PlayNow.com, with tickets available until 7:30pm (PT) on draw days. Players can now check their lottery tickets anytime, anywhere on iOS and Android devices.
