Marcello Battison is one lucky man.

The Burnaby senior won a whopping $25.9 in the March 10 Lotto Max draw.

At first, Battison said he could not believe he won.

“I asked the clerk who checked my ticket, ‘Did I win $5? The clerk said, ‘No! You won the whole pot!'” explained Battison in a release.

The senior purchased the lucky ticket at International News located in Burnaby’s Brentwood Mall.

Battison will be sharing the winnings with his family and is planning a vacation to Hawaii with his wife.

“I feel good about it,” he said. ” I have more than enough money to live comfortably and help the family.”
