A Langley couple has won the $5 million Lotto 6/49 jackpot draw on Jan. 1, giving them a pretty good start to the new year.
Colin and Elena Maynes won with a ticket purchased in Cloverdale and checked at the Willowbrook Shopping Centre.
â€œThe clerk printed off the results and handed them to me,â€ said Colin. â€œI was in total shock. I was so stunned I finished my errands around the mall before calling my wife to share the news. She was in disbelief.â€
The couple are the first Lotto 6/49 winners of the year in B.C.
They plan to pay off their house, possibly buy a new car, and take a trip to Cyprus to visit family.
