Boating enthusiasts James Reid and Angelina Meier are setting sail as millionaires after reeling in the $1-million Guaranteed Prize from the Lotto 6/49 draw on June 17, 2020.
Fittingly, the Cobble Hill couple purchased its ticket at Pier 66 Marina on Cowichan Bay Road, the same location where Reid found out that its ticket was a winner.
“The amount came across the screen so I immediately took a photo of it to show my wife,” Reid recalled.
On how it feels to be winners? “It feels unreal,” Meier exclaimed. “It will probably take a while before it really sinks in!”
“It still feels surreal,” added Reid.
The pair plan to put the prize towards some travelling in the near future.
