Burnaby’s Binxiao Qin and his fiancée have a little extra money to plan their special day, after Qin won a $1-million Maxmillions prize from the December 10, 2021 Lotto Max draw.
“My fiancée was so surprised,” says Qin. “We found out on the BCLC Lotto! App [the day after the draw]. I showed her the phone and we saw the $1-million prize.”
Qin was inspired to buy his ticket on PlayNow.com when his co-workers were buying their lottery tickets and reminded him to buy his.
“They were buying their tickets, so I thought ‘okay, I’ll follow along, I’ll buy too,’” says Qin.
Those same co-workers told him the next day they had won one dollar, sparking him to check his ticket.
“I was just so surprised!”
