Next Stop: Africa! Abbotsford Resident to Take African Safari After $1-Million Lotto 6/49 Win

October 16, 2023


Dale Domshy’s dream of embarking on a jungle safari through Africa will soon come true thanks to his recent $1-million Lotto 6/49 win from the September 30, 2023 draw.

The Abbotsford resident, who purchased his ticket from BCLC’s, was at home on the computer when he received an email notification of his win.

“It’s such an amazing feeling,” he said of how it feels after discovering his win. 

Domshy opted to tell his wife the good news during her coffee break at work – a decision that was sure to perk up her afternoon.

“I told my wife right away. She was shaking and almost crying!”

Domshy plans to celebrate his win with friends and family and looks forward to purchasing some land with a portion of his prize, in addition to the African adventure.
