Victoria resident and avid hockey-fan Beau Williams just came one step closer to his ‘goal’ of purchasing a home after winning a $1-million Maxmillions prize from the June 7, 2022 Lotto Max draw.

“I was at a Save-On-Foods and had to check my ticket five times because I didn’t believe it. I gave it to the cashier to check and I was in disbelief,” said Williams, who purchased the winning ticket at the Shoppers Drug Mart on West Saanich Road. 

“My girlfriend was the first person I shared the news with — she was excited, and also in disbelief!” 

Williams is planning to use the winnings to purchase a home and travel. 

“I’ve always wanted to do a road trip across Canada. A couple years ago, my girlfriend and I were going to drive across the country and then COVID hit.” 

How does Williams feel about winning a million dollars? 

“It takes a lot of stress off of me — it’s unreal!”
