Michael Caladro says he feels “happy and humble” after winning $75,000 in the May 26, 2021 BC/49 draw. The Lake Country resident purchased the winning ticket at the Otter Co-op in Aldergrove and matched five of the six numbers plus the bonus number. 

“I recall checking it on the [BCLC Lotto!] app and thought I had won $75,” says Caladero. “When I checked it at the gas station it took me by surprise finding out it was $75,000.”

On how he plans to celebrate, Caladro says he plans to put most of the money aside for when his kids go to college and buy something nice for his wife.
