Dragoljub Stevovic thought he was just heading out to get his daily morning coffee, but this time he returned home with an ‘Extra’ ticket from the Lotto 6/49 November 21, 2020 draw, worth exactly $108,189.80.
The Langley resident was at the Tim Hortons located inside the 7-Eleven store on 88th Avenue, where he purchased the ticket the day before, when he remembered he had a few tickets to check.
“I asked the retailer to check my ticket and, when they told me I was a winner I was nervous and happy at the same time,” Stevovic recalled. “The store was really busy and there were a lot of people in there, so I can't really remember what I was thinking at that exact moment!”
Stevovic called his wife and kids right away, all of whom were very excited about his winning news.
He has plans to purchase a travel trailer with his prize and will put the rest into savings.
