John Maclachlan has been dreaming of a trip to Norway with his wife and, thanks to winning more than $63,000 from the December 16, 2020 Lotto 6/49 draw, that dream can come true, once it’s safe to travel again.
Maclachlan was relaxing, reading the newspaper at home when he came across his winning numbers.
“I couldn’t believe that I was a winner,” he exclaimed.
The Richmond resident purchased the ticket from Seafair Smoke and Mixer on Number 1 Road and rushed to verify his numbers at the nearest retailer once he found out the amazing news.
“I haven’t told anyone except for my wife. I was so excited to find out that I won!”
Maclachlan and his wife look forward to their getaway once it’s safe to take flight.
