Kamloops Grandparents Celebrate Lotto Win by Taking Life Easy18/12/2018
When Kamloops’ Rodney Plesko returned home from shopping, his wife thought something terrible had happened. “He looked like he crashed the truck,” said Anne Plesko. “He was like, I need to tell you something.”
Fortunately, that something was life-changing news – and in the best way possible.
Rodney matched all seven numbers to win $1 million in the Lotto Max Maxmillions draw held November, 30, 2018. “We were at Save on Foods. I was picking up Chinese food and buying some lottery tickets for the week,” said Plesko. “I was just like ‘Oh My God!’ I checked the ticket again, and then went to a different store to make sure it was real.”
“I couldn’t believe it,” insisted Anne. “I’m still waiting for him to tell me he crashed the truck.”
At the moment they don’t have any big plans for the money, and admit they still need some time to adjust. “It happened so fast that it really hasn’t sunk in yet,” added Plesko. “We just want to celebrate with family. We love to camp with our RV so maybe a lot more of that next year.”
Rodney purchased his winning ticket at the Orchard Park Shopping Centre in Kelowna. He is one of 30 British Columbians to win a Lotto Max Maxmillions prize in 2018. Anyone can win and #youcouldbenext. Watch some amazing lottery winner stories at www.playnow.com/lottery/winners/you-could-be-next.
