Nanaimo Man Plans to Get Back Into a Classic Car after Lotto 6/49 Win

15/01/2019

Like many lottery winners, Nanaimo’s Dale Euerby was in disbelief when he found out he matched the 10-digit number on his Lotto 6/49 ticket to win $1 million in the Guaranteed Prize Draw held January 5, 2019.

While it may be true that players don’t plan on winning, they often do have plans right after they find out they’ve won.

“I used to own a beautiful Corvette from 1967,” said Euerby. “I think now is the time to start looking for another one.”

Euerby, who purchased his winning ticket at the Northridge General Store on Turner Road in Nanaimo, was buying his next ticket when he decided to scan the one he had with him. “I scanned it and it said ‘winner,’ so I gave it to the lady behind the counter to scan it. I thought it must be some mistake,” Euerby said. “I was dumbstruck. It’s incredulous. That’s what I felt when the numbers came up.”

Despite the life-changing win, Euerby plans to keep playing the lottery. “I’ve been playing the lottery every weekend for 10 years. I will keep playing because it’s my routine, and who knows, maybe a jackpot is in my future.”

The Nanaimo resident also plans to spend more time on the golf course, showing up in his vintage Corvette, of course.

“It really solidifies the future,” added Euerby.
