Congratulations David O'Brien


Burnaby man to travel the world after $5 million Lotto win

David O'Brien couldn't believe his own eyes when he checked the winning numbers for the May 4, 2016 6/49 draw.

"I saw I had all six numbers but it didn't even register," smiled O'Brien. "I was a bit shaken at first and then I yelled, 'yipee!'"

O'Brien has only told his wife about the win so far, and plans to treat her to the finer things in life.

"I was already a winner when I met my wife," laughed O'Brien. "I will definitely spend more money on her now that I'm a 6/49 winner."

The other thing O'Brien plans to do with his money is travel the world.

"I will do more travelling for sure," exclaimed O'Brien. "There are so many places I want to see like Asia and Australia."

The winning ticket was purchased at the Save-On-Foods in Highgate Village Shopping Centre in Burnaby.
