A lucky Pinoy janitor won the 6/49 lotto jackpot in Canada.
He is Vito Halasan who migrated to Canada in 2009. In total, he won 7 million CAD, which is equivalent to a whopping PHP 270 million.
According to the press release of British Columbia Lottery Corporation (BCLC), the ticket he held matched all six Lotto numbers that were drawn last April 27, 2019.
It was indeed the best birthday gift for this Pinoy janitor as he has just celebrated his 58th birthday on the same month he won.
BCLC also shared the reaction of Vito Halasan’s family who were very surprised with what happened.
“He sat me down at the table. And then he whispered really quietly to me that he won $7 million dollars. I didn’t believe him. We had to check online several times.”
As to what this lotto winner will do with his prize-
“I buy lottery tickets so I can dream. I dream of being able to take care of my kids and make their future better. Now we’ll be able to buy a nice house for my children and grandchildren.”
However, what’s surprising is that Vito had no plans to resign from his current job. Instead, he will just lessen his working hours.
