A Coquitlam man purchased the lucky ticket with the correct numbers to unlock a $12.8 million cheque in his name.
56 year old Ian Hirsch of Coquitlam says he couldn’t believe it when he checked his ticket.
“This can’t be right! Or the date has got to be wrong, or something.”
The big question… What’s the first thing he’s going to do with the money?
“Investment is actually going to be the first thing, get that rolling, and worry about purchases down the road.”
Hirsch and his partner Dianne say their children’s reaction was priceless.
“I can’t believe what they said on the phone. They were saying I can’t believe it but they were using swear words. I can’t effing believe it to be exact.”
The winning ticket was purchased at Shoppers Drug Mart at Burke Mountain.
