Baljinder Arjan Singh was pleasantly surprised when he scored exactly $104,016.70 after matching 5/6+ numbers from the Lotto 6/49 draw on November 18, 2020.

The Burnaby resident purchased the ticket from Bainbridge Mart on Bainbridge Avenue and was at home when he found out the shocking news.

“I was really happy when I found out… it’s a nice win,” said Arjan Singh. 

Arjan Singh checked his numbers on and then confirmed his win on a self-checker at a lottery retailer the following day. 

Arjan Singh says he’s been playing the lottery for a few years and enjoys picking his own numbers, with the number 22 being a continual pick since it’s his birthdate.

The writer plans on purchasing a new computer with his prize and will put the rest into savings.
