Their identity hasn’t been revealed yet, but a resident from Surrey is BC’s newest multi-millionaire, after they matched all seven numbers on the December 28, 2018, Lotto Max draw.

In total, the person won a whopping $39.5 million and the BC Lottery Corporation said a  cheque presentation is scheduled for this afternoon at 1 pm in Vancouver.

Editor’s note: A previous version of this story identified the lottery winner as a man. It is a Surrey BC woman who won the jackpot.
