Abbotsford man to climb the property ladder with $2.3 million Lotto 6/49 win08/03/2017
Hung Nguyen attempted to play it cool after finding out he won $2.3 million playing Lotto 6/49.
“I didn’t want to get too excited, and tried to act calm and normal,” laughed Nguyen. “But I couldn’t sleep last night because I wanted to claim my prize right away!”
Nguyen split the Lotto 6/49 jackpot with two other winning tickets from Ontario and Quebec on the March 4, 2017 draw.
He says he’ll use his winnings to upgrade to a bigger house, and pay for his children’s education.
“This is my time to get a big house,” exclaimed Nguyen. “And my kids are so happy because they don’t ever have to worry about student loans!”
The winning ticket was purchased at the South Fraser Way Esso Station in Abbotsford.
