Maple Ridge resident is buying a Corvette after $1 million win


Clarke Hillier has been playing Lotto Max for years and always dreamed about winning big. His dream recently came true after winning a $1 million Maxmillion prize on the December 18, 2015 Lotto Max draw.

“This is a surreal experience but it proves dreams come true,” smiled Hillier. “This is why we all play the lottery – to win and experience this feeling.”

Hillier was running errands when he decided to check his ticket.

“I self-checked the ticket and instantly knew I had won big money. I even took a picture of the screen which I later had to text my wife as proof when she didn’t believe I won,” laughed Hillier.

The Maple Ridge resident says he will likely buy a new house with the winnings along with a blue Corvette for his wife. Hillier is also happy about paying off his bills.

“This win will allow me to leave a legacy for my children,” smiled Hillier.

There will be $95 million up for grabs in the next Lotto Max draw on December 25, 2015 with an estimated $60 million jackpot and 35 individual Maxmillion prizes of $1 million.

The winning ticket was purchased at Richmond Gas & Car Wash on Granville Avenue.

Did you know that gaming revenue is used to build local infrastructure? The City of Richmond was able to commit $50 million of its share of provincial gaming revenue from River Rock Casino Resort to help with the initial construction of the Richmond Oval.
