Congratulations Tuong Van Mai!


Early Christmas present of $1 million for Kelowna resident

Tuong Van Mai of Kelowna only recently started purchasing Lotto 6/49 tickets and it has already paid off to the tune of $1 million. Van Mai won the Guaranteed $1 million prize in the December 16, 2015 Lotto 6/49 draw.

"When I checked my ticket before work I couldn't believe I won $1 million because I never thought I would win that big," admitted Van Mai. "I was shocked and overwhelmed but I still went into work that day."

As for how she will spend the winnings, Van Mai wants to share the wealth with her parents.

"The money will be put towards buying a new home for my retired parents because they have done so much to support me," smiled Van Mai.

The big win is an early present for Van Mai and she plans on celebrating with her family over Christmas dinner.

The winning ticket was purchased at Superstore in Westbank.
