A last-minute lottery ticket has paid off in a big win for Canada’s latest millionaire.
Sun Jie of Richmond, BC, was at the pharmacy when she decided to buy a Lotto 6/49 ticket for the May 10, 2023, draw.
Jie checked her ticket using a self-scanner in Admiralty Centre and was shocked when the numbers popped up on the screen in front of her. Her family felt the same way when they heard the good news.
“My family couldn’t believe I won that kind of money,” Jie shared. “They thought it was unbelievable.”
