Richmond Daily Grand Winner Ponders the Possibilities


Vancouver, B.C. August 20, 2018 – Richmond’s George Peradenic is considering all the possibilities after winning the secondary prize of $25,000 a Year for Life from the August 13, 2018 Daily Grand draw. After matching all five numbers, missing only the GRAND NUMBER,
Peradenic split the prize with another winning ticket sold in Ontario to take home a lump sum of $250,000.

“I have certainly dreamed about winning the lottery, but never really thought about what I would do if I ever actually won,” he said. “It still seems a little unbelievable at times, but I’m very happy, it’s a great feeling.”

Peradenic says the win will help him relax and appreciate the simpler joys of life, such as camping and spending time with family. “I’m retired and this is what makes the golden years even more golden,” he said. As far as what he plans to do with his winnings, Peradenic is going
to take his time and think about the possibilities.

Peradenic purchased his winning Daily Grand ticket at International News on River Road in Richmond.
