Dreams can come true for Vancouver $1 million Lotto 6/49 winner


Clara Suen of Vancouver won the Guaranteed $1 Million Prize in the June 22, 2016 Lotto 6/49 draw, and can sum up her experience in one word: happy!

So far, Suen has only shared the exciting news with her husband and will surprise her sons at a family dinner.

“I wanted to make sure this was real before I told anyone else,” laughed Suen. “I can’t wait to share the good news with my sons when I see them!”

The newly minted millionaire already has a shopping list that includes a new condo and fancy jewelry.

“I will buy myself a nice gift like a crystal to remember this special day,” smiled Suen. “This also means I can start making some dreams come true.”

The winning ticket was purchased at the lottery kiosk in Oakridge Centre in Vancouver. This is one of four winning Guaranteed $1 Million Prize tickets sold in B.C. in the last four weeks.

Every time a lottery ticket is purchased in B.C., it funds programs across the province. Learn more here.
