Kelowna man gets $1 million birthday surprise with lottery win

05/06/2017

It was a $1 million birthday for David McLeod of Kelowna.

He bought a Lotto 6/49 ticket for the May 17, 2017 draw, which was on his birthday. It’s a birthday he won’t soon forget as he won the Guaranteed $1 million Prize.

“It was a great birthday present,” laughed McLeod. “I texted the picture of the validation slip to my wife to confirm what I was seeing!”

McLeod has big plans for his winnings now that the win is starting to sink in.

“I’m going to pay off my mortgage first,” smiled McLeod. “Then I’m going to donate to the Rotary and help out my kids with university.”

The winning ticket was purchased at the Safeway Gas Bar in Dawson Creek. 

BCLC offers socially responsible gambling entertainment while generating income to benefit all British Columbians. Remember, play for fun, not to make money. For more information visit GameSense.ca.

Lotto 6/49 is a nationwide lottery game drawn on Wednesdays and Saturdays after 7:30 p.m. (PT). Each draw includes a Guaranteed Prize Draw of $1 million. Players can purchase tickets at any lottery retailer or at PlayNow.com.
