After winning the Guaranteed $1-million Lotto 6/49 prize in the January 19, 2022 draw, Michael Wadsworth checked with his wife multiple times to be sure he understood which dream car she had picked out.

“I asked if she was sure, that there’s also Audis and BMWs,” said Wadsworth. “She said ‘nope, I want a Volvo.’”

The Duncan resident says the win was a complete shock to him.

“It’s funny, because I always thought that one day I would log in to my PlayNow.com account to check my lottery tickets and see a great big number,” said Wadsworth. “I brought my breakfast into the living room, sat down in my chair, was checking my e-mails, and I almost fell out of the chair when I saw the prize.”

Volvo car purchase aside, Wadsworth says he would like to take his family on a vacation to Maui when the time is right.

In 2021, B.C. lottery players redeemed more than $99 million in winnings from Lotto 6/49.
