Kimberley Resident Retiring After $1 Million Lotto 6/49 Win

$1,000,000.00

Congratulations Jeremy!


While Jeremy I. has loved his career in public service, the Kimberley resident is ready to ride off into the retirement sunset after winning the $1 million Lotto 6/49 GUARANTEED Prize for the December 26, 2020 draw. 

“My wife and I have been in shock for days!”

Jeremy was a police officer until 2003 when he moved to Kimberley with his wife and became an animal protection officer, says he’s still having a hard time believing his win is real.“I’ve been going on my phone every few hours just to check my ticket on the BCLC Lotto! app ,” he says. 

“There were a lot of zeroes” 

He purchased his winning ticket on PlayNow.com, says his wife was speechless when she first saw the extra million dollars in his account. ”We sat down trying to talk about what we’re going to do -- and at the same time we’re just trying to absorb this win.”

In 2020, B.C. lottery players redeemed more than $106 million in winnings from Lotto 6/49. Lotto 6/49 is a nationwide lottery game drawn on Wednesdays and Saturdays after 7:30 p.m. (PST).

Congratulations, Jeremy! Wishing you and your family all the best. Anyone can win, #YouCouldBeNext!
