Vernon resident, Robert Jaeger, is the latest jackpot winner from the Okanagan! Jaeger won the $5 million Lotto 6/49 jackpot on the April 9, 2016 draw. Jaeger's win came a day after the $50 million Lotto Max jackpot was won in Kelowna by June Bergh and a few weeks earlier, Kelowna resident Robert Goertzen won the $21.9 million Lotto 6/49 jackpot.
As for Jaeger, he hasn't stopped smiling since discovering he is $5 million richer.
"Everyone has been so happy and excited for me," exclaimed Jaeger. "I have really felt like the talk of the town!"
Jaeger says he was so excited about the win that he was only able to sleep for two hours the night before claiming his big prize. But that won't stop him from celebrating.
"I'm planning on treating 20 of my closest friends to dinner – of course it's on me," smiled Jaeger.
As for his winnings, Jaeger says he will share some of his winnings with family and bank the rest for now.
The winning ticket was purchased at Kirby's Kiosk on Highway 6 in Vernon.
