Lottery jackpots abound across the Canadian provinces and players across the nation could brag with their lottery winnings being a major surprise in their lives. Richmond recently welcomed a CA$1-million prize payout thanks to a Lotto 6/49 ticket being purchased in the region. Marlon Coronado is the fortunate lotto enthusiast who is among the newest lottery millionaires of Canada.
It is no secret that Lotto 6/49 is among the generous draw-based lottery offerings out there, aiming to change people’s lives and make them hassle-free with the purchase of a ticket. Millions of players participate in the regular draws and hope for the best but more often than not their wishes come true. British Columbia has been like a magnet for lotto prizes over the past months.
Lotto 6/49 CA$1m Prize
Mr. Coronado hails from Richmond and he is an avid lottery player with great dreams. Many players prepare in advance for a potential lottery prize and they have a list of things to be accomplished once they bag the big cash payout. Rarely do they realize the true magnitude of a lottery prize upon receiving it, as the amount is usually greater than they have ever experienced.
November 20 was the lucky day for Mr. Coronado, as this is when the regular Lotto 6/49 became a special one for him. It was like a dream come true, as the jackpot came at a special time of his life – right after his birthday. Mr. Coronado celebrated his 36th birthday right before the recent Lotto 6/49 draw, meaning that winning the lottery might have been among the wishes he made while blowing the candles.
The lucky man still thinks that the good luck charm for him was Bichon Frise dog, which recently turned one. The teddy-bear looking dog called Martial might have brought him good luck, as Mr. Coronado is certain this would not have happened without it. The Guarantee $1 Million Prize is among the most coveted shares of Lotto 6/49 overall prize pool.
Lotto MAX Reaches CA$50 Million
The winner is usually a Lotto MAX aficionado, but it appears that Lotto 6/49 had more for him in store. Martial was the first living being to hear the good news, as Mr. Coronado’s wife was at work at the time. The couple plans to make a trip to the Philippines, as well as purchase a home for the two of them and the dog in Richmond. Meanwhile, an Ontario couple is also among the major winners this month.
Melvin and Heather Roumeliotis of Guelph are now lotto millionaires with the help of a Lotto 6/49 ticket bringing them CA$1 million. The two of them became eligible for the cash prize on November 13 and they were quick to bag their prize. Plans for the foreseeable future include investing a slice of the overall prize, as well as sharing it with their loved ones and spending it for various purchases.
In the meantime, Lotto 6/49 returned for another draw on November 23 with a Main Prize reaching CA$11 million. However, it remained unclaimed once again, swelling to CA$14 million as we approach the November 27 draw. Lotto MAX has a CA$50-million Main Prize ready to be grabbed once the November 26 draw comes. The amount is rapidly approaching the CA$70-million cap.
