A Nanaimo man is ready to go on the bucket-list trip of a lifetime after winning $1 million in a guaranteed prize draw on a Lotto 6/49 ticket last month.
James Honeyman said he was relaxing on his sundeck when he brought up the BCLC app the day after the Saturday, July 23 draw.
When he saw he had won, he was in disbelief.
“I was up early. When I told my wife I won, she didn’t believe me at first,” said Honeyman in a BCLC news release.
The couple says they plan on making their dream destinations a reality with the winnings.
“It has always been on our bucket list to go on a cruise through the Panama Canal,” said Honeyman, adding he’s looking into luxury cruises.
BCLC does not provide the odds of winning the guaranteed prize draw on 6/49 on its website. The odds of winning the top prize in Lotto 6/49 are 1 in 13,983,816.
