Things are looking up for Surrey man after $1 Million win

12/10/2017

Kurtis Reid of Surrey is enjoying life on ‘Cloud 6/49’ after winning the $1 million Guaranteed Prize on the October 4, 2017 Lotto 6/49 draw.

“I’ve lived a pretty frugal life, but I’m going to celebrate with this win for sure!” exclaimed Reid.

Reid, who is a landscaper and grave digger, plans to invest some of his winnings into his business. After that, he has his eyes set on travelling and seeing the world.

“I’m taking my dog on a holiday,” smiled Reid. “I’ve never been outside of B.C. so I’m looking forward to travelling!”

The winning ticket was purchased at the Sunnyside Esso on King George Boulevard in Surrey.
