Vernon Man Gets "the Best Christmas Gift Ever" Thanks to $1 Million Win
This holiday season is truly the most wonderful time of the year for Devin C., who won a $1 million Maxmillion prize on the December 22, 2017 Lotto Max draw.
The 32 year old Vernon resident, who works for a snow removal company, checked his ticket online after learning someone in Vernon had won the Lotto Max draw. "I was kind of freaking out when I saw that I had matched all 7 numbers." Because of holiday hours, Devin had to wait a few days before claiming his ticket. "I was dancing around my apartment all weekend!" he laughed.
For Devin, this win couldn't have come at a better time of the year. "I am ecstatic! It is unbelievable. This is definitely the best Christmas gift I have ever received!"
While he still has to think about how to enjoy his winnings, Devin says he intends to invest in real estate and purchase a vehicle. He will also celebrate with his family over dinner and share his holiday cheer.
The winning ticket was purchased at Sir Winston's Pub in Vernon, B.C.
