Langley couple Ralph and Jan Janzen will soon be swapping cabin time for castle time in Disneyland, after winning a Maxmillions prize of $1 million from the October 14, 2022 Lotto Max draw.
“I thought he was lying to me,” recalled Jan when Ralph told her that they won the lottery.
“I brought reading glasses for her and showed her the winning amount on the Lotto! App,” explained Ralph.
The Janzens plan on taking their children and grandchildren on a trip to Disneyland to visit famous Disney castles and more – and hope to visit a tropical destination during the winter.
On how it feels to win $1 million?
“Fortunate, surreal! We dreamt of helping our kids and grandkids if we ever won.”
The Janzens purchased their winning ticket at the Circle-K on 88 Avenue in Langley.
