Dawson Creek Winner

Bruce Robar was enjoying a cup of coffee when he brimmed with excitement after realizing he won the $1 million Guaranteed Prize from the October 13, 2021 Lotto 6/49 draw. 

“I saw there was a big winner in Dawson Creek and I couldn’t stop looking at the ticket,” Robar recalled.

Robar purchased his ticket at Spikes Pub on 10th Street, winning the big prize on a Quick Pick ticket. 

He couldn’t wait to share the news with his daughter.

“She didn’t believe me at first. She was at work when I told her and she had to try her hardest to keep quiet because she was so happy for me,” Robar exclaimed.

The Dawson Creek resident plans to share some of his prize with his kids and grandchildren and also looks forward to taking a trip to Eastern Canada to visit his two brothers.

“This win is going to make life easier for me and will give me the opportunity to help out my family,” Robar added. “I am happy!”
