A relaxing cup of coffee in the hot tub quickly bubbled into a rollercoaster of emotions for Roderick Reid upon discovering the news that he matched 5/6+ numbers from the January 27, 2024 Lotto 6/49 draw, netting him a $160,189 prize. 

Reid, who purchased his ticket on, was enjoying a moment in the hot tub with a cup of java when he decided to check his numbers online and couldn’t believe what he saw.

“I was completely flabbergasted,” he exclaimed.

The Kelowna resident has a few ideas for his prize, including renovating his home and planning a trip to Hawaii. Reid also plans to celebrate his windfall with friends during an upcoming Mexican vacation that was planned prior to his win.

“Grateful, excited and overwhelmed” are three words Reid used to describe how it feels to win the lottery.
