Pals Douglas Klashinsky and Marcel Zastre were “amazed” to discover that they matched 5/6+ numbers from the October 30, 2021 Lotto 6/49 draw, netting them an ‘Extra’ $50,378.40.

Klashinsky, from Delta, and Zastre, from White Rock, have been playing the lottery together for more than a decade and purchased their ticket from the Rod & Gun Hotel on Alberni Highway in Parksville.

“I checked the ticket at a local pub and had to check it a couple of times to make sure the machine was working properly,” Klashinsky recalled.

Naturally, Klashinsky called Zastre to tell him the exciting news.

“He asked if we will still play Lotto 6/49 and what I’m going to do with my portion of the win, but I hadn’t checked the ticket yet so I didn’t know what he was talking about,” said Zastre.

Klashinsky plans to share some of his portion of the win with his children and family.

“I’m quite amazed that we won,” Klashinsky added.
