Sharing $1 million prize with family top priority for Lotto 6/49 winner14/08/2014
It has always been Rob Johnson’s dream to win a Lotto 6/49 jackpot and share the prize with his family.
That dream has now come true as he won the Guaranteed $1 million Prize Draw on Lotto 6/49 on the March 8 Lotto 6/49 draw. Johnson will share the prize with family members as they all came forward to collect the prize together.
“It has always been our plan that if we won the lottery we would share it with the kids,” described Johnson. “I’m excited that it now becomes reality.”
Johnson and his partner had not yet come forward to collect the prize because they wanted to wait until the family was able to come in and collect it together. The numbers he plays with are made up of birthdays and important family milestones.
“I have been playing the exact same lottery numbers since the game started more than 30 years ago,” described Johnson. “It finally feels real now that we’ve walked the red carpet into the winner’s lounge at the BCLC office.”
The winning ticket was purchased at 7-Eleven on 57th Street and Ladner Trunk Road in Delta, B.C.
