British Columbia Lottery Corporation revealed the name of Canada’s latest lottery millionaire who collected his prize just recently. Ronald Cumiskey is the individual who managed to become eligible for a CA$24 million jackpot coming with one of the most recent Lotto 6/49 draws. His surprise was immense upon finding out he is the winner.
May 27 was an important day for many lottery fans, as it brought a Lotto 6/49 Main prize amounting to some CA$24 million. The jackpot itself was a rather large sum generated over the previous couple of weeks, as no winning ticket managed to match the needed numbers during the draws. However, Lady Luck had plans for an individual hailing from Aldergrove, British Columbia.
The growing jackpot coming with this popular draw-based lottery product attracted quite the crowd and the eventual winner was part of it. Mr. Cumiskey purchased the winning ticket on May 27 just before the regular draw was about to take place. However, he did not check the ticket until later on that evening, as he simply forgot about it.
The lottery winner shared that he was about to go to sleep when he remembered about the lottery ticket he had in his possession. He then proceeded to check the numbers printed on it and compare them with the ones drawn earlier that day. They were matching, which meant that he had become a millionaire without even realizing it. Mr. Cumiskey checked the ticket several more times, before finally realizing the truth.
He could not believe his eyes, as this was a dream come true for him, something he never considered possible even though he is a regular lottery ticket purchaser. Mr. Cumiskey then told his girlfriend the good news, while he also informed his roommate about the good news. The particular amount he became eligible for was CA$24,369,459, a sum he was ready to receive immediately.
Plans for the Future
Such an amount could set him up for life, which is why the Aldergrove resident also called his boss. Mr. Cumiskey had been working for two decades for his employer, but he decided it is high time that this came to an end. He told him that he is the Lotto 6/49 winner all locals had been talking about and he would like to retire. Now it is time for some plans for the future.
Mr. Cumisky has a bucket list including exotic locations to the likes of Oahu, Hawaii, as well as Pearl Harbor. In addition to that, he also made it clear that visiting Atlantic Canada is also among his dreams that could soon come true. The Lotto 6/49 winner is also ready to help his close ones and make their life easier too.
June 6 is about to bring the next Lotto 6/49 draw coming with the minimal Main prize. CA$5 million is the prize that will be up for grabs on Saturday and players also have the chance to grab the single CA$1-million additional prize coming with this draw.
