From Cook to Restauranteur

Surrey’s Vinh Tran will soon be his own boss after matching all ten numbers to win the November 23, 2019 Lotto 6/49 Guaranteed $1 million prize.

Tran, who currently works as a cook, said he won’t waste any time opening up his own Vietnamese restaurant, a dream he’s long had.

“I’m so happy, I can’t wait to be my own boss,” said Tran, who has played Lotto 6/49, BC/49 and Lotto Max since 2015.

Tran purchased the winning ticket at Chimney Hill Town Pantry in Surrey. The first person he told after scanning the ticket was his best friend.

“At first he didn’t believe me — then he told me to cash it in,” Tran recalled, saying he’s glad he decided to buy the ticket during his gas-station visit.

“Just take a chance, you never know.”
