Cranbrook man wins $4.9 million Lotto 6/49
Douglas was 'playing it forward' and spreading holiday cheer when he decided to buy a Lotto 6/49 winning ticket.
"I was feeling good when I bought the ticket because I had just finished doing some volunteer work and I was dressed up with a Christmas tie and everything," recalled Douglas.
Douglas won $4.9 million on the December 17, 2016 Lotto 6/49 draw, and says he's looking forward to some leisurely pursuits and to the extra opportunities to give back to his favourite local charities.
"Now I can make sure my garden and property will look the way I want it to look,'" smiled Douglas. "And we'll also be making some contributions to three local charities all of which do great work in Cranbrook."
