Lotto 6/49 Millionaire Proves Lightning Strikes Twice

Lotto 6/49 and Lotto MAX are among the most popular lottery products Canadians are often drawn to. A Burnaby lottery enthusiast was able to taste the jackpot once, four years ago, and now it was his time for a second windfall. David O’Brien hailing from Burnaby recently bagged CA$1 million thanks to a lucky Lotto 6/49 ticket purchase.

Lottery tickets purchases happen on a daily basis in Canada, as this is one of the most popular gaming offerings. People religiously purchase them and often play with the same numbers over and over again, as they have a special significance for them. They believe that these numbers will bring them good fortune and a windfall. Lightning strikes twice for some people and Mr. O’Brien can confirm.

Lotto Jackpots Galore

He was one of Canada’s latest lottery millionaires, an achievement that was possible following the purchase of a Lotto 6/49 ticket. The Burnaby individual was ready for something life-changing to happen when he made the ticket purchase ahead of the June 20 Lotto 6/49 draw. He made his way to a 7-Eleven store on Kingsway in Burnaby and once again purchased the preferred Lotto 6/49 ticket.

This is his favorite lottery offering, as he has been purchasing lottery tickets for as long as he can remember. The thrill of the upcoming live draw is something he is drawn to. The prize Mr. O’Brien managed to become eligible for came as an additional one for the Lotto 6/49 regular draw and amounted to some CA$1 million.

The winner of two lottery jackpots was still astonished when he had the chance to bag his prize. He learned the good news about this second jackpot soon after the draw was over and he was quick to tell his wife. However, she did not believe him at first and she thought that this was one of his jokes again.

First Lotto Jackpot Won in 2016

Once he convinced her that they have, in fact, increased their savings once again, they celebrated with coffee and a cake. Then they started planning the claiming of the jackpot Mr. O’Brien was eligible for. They contacted the British Columbia Lottery Corporation and set the date for the jackpot claim ceremony which took place just recently. The winner shared the story about his first lotto jackpot.

The Burnaby individual became eligible for it back in May 2016 and it amounted to CA$5 million. He managed to match all six needed numbers for the Lotto 6/49 Main prize and became the sole winner of it. The jackpot he won did not mean that he stopped purchasing lottery tickets and chasing the same high. This passionate attitude towards lottery gaming guaranteed him a second jackpot.

Now it is time for some plans for the future. Mr. O’Brien made it clear that he is going to share the CA$1-million with his wife and treat her to something special. Moreover, the two of them love traveling and they would like to visit India in the foreseeable future.
