A BC man is excitedly looking forward to a tropical vacation or two thanks to his recent lottery win that netted him a cool $500,000.
Brian Schwemler took home the prize in the Lotto Max draw.
“At first I thought ‘wow,'” he said of his first reaction. “When I scanned the ticket, I couldn’t believe it!”
The Keremeos resident shared a Maxmillions prize with another winner in Langley.
Schwemler says he then shared the news with his daughter, who was “delighted for him”.
“We showed her the scanned ticket on the app,” he said.
In addition to some incredible vacations, he says he’s also looking forward to more financial freedom because of his good fortune.
“It’s too hard to describe!” he said.
So far in 2022, BC lottery players have redeemed over $144 million from Lotto Max.
The winning ticket was purchased from Canco on BC-3A in Keremeos.
