It was a workday like any other – that is, until Shaun Hill had to keep his composure and finish his day at work after learning he won a $1-million Maxmillions prize from the September 13, 2022, Lotto Max draw.
“I was at work and scanned my ticket on my Lotto! app,” said Hill. “I thought ‘wow’ and scanned it again trying to wrap my head around it. I had to finish off the workday as if nothing happened!”
Apart from purchasing a home and new vehicle, the Abbotsford resident plans to travel to Hawaii to play golf.
“I would love to play golf in Hawaii one day.”
On how it feels to win?
“Surprised! Delighted! It’s going to make me comfortable for a while. I will never forget this win.”
Hill purchased his ticket at the Husky gas station on 216 Street in Langley.
