Michael Redmile is ready to turn the ignition on an unforgettable ride after cruising into $1 million from the December 11, 2021 Lotto 6/49 Guaranteed Prize draw.

“I’ll buy a side by side for me and my girls,” the Quesnel resident said after claiming his prize.

In addition to picking up the keys to a brand-new utility task vehicle, Redmile said he’s looking forward to giving back to his community.

“I’ve always wanted to help others, so some will go to tidings,” he said.

Redmile purchased his ticket at Frank’s Grocery Store and also found out he won there.

“I was in disbelief when I saw the number come up on the screen,” he recalled. “I checked it several times to make sure it was true.” 

Once he realized he’d won, he called his dad to share his life-changing news.

“He was just in awe – like I was, and excited for me,” he recalled.
