Kelowna man gets $1 million birthday surprise with lottery win
It was a $1 million birthday for David M. of Kelowna.
He bought a Lotto 6/49 ticket for the May 17, 2017 draw, which was on his birthday. It's a birthday he won't soon forget as he won the Guaranteed $1 million Prize.
"It was a great birthday present," laughed David. "I texted the picture of the validation slip to my wife to confirm what I was seeing!"
David has big plans for his winnings now that the win is starting to sink in.
"I'm going to pay off my mortgage first," smiled David. "Then I'm going to donate to the Rotary and help out my kids with university."
The winning ticket was purchased at the Safeway Gas Bar in Dawson Creek.
