“We moved here with a dream, this is beyond anything we imagined,” said Wei Liang Huang, who with his mother, Rui Juan Huang, matched all 10 numbers to win the November 23, 2019 Guaranteed $1 million Lotto 6/49 Prize Draw.
“We moved here over 30 years ago,” explained Wei Liang. “We dreamt of winning the lottery before, but never thought it would happen.”
On what they plan to do with the winnings, 89-year-old Rui Juan said, “We haven’t thought about all of that yet, but we are considering a house and maybe some furniture.”
Huang added, “It’s a lot of money — we want to slowly celebrate and slowly spend it.”
The East Vancouver mother-son duo purchased the winning ticket at Sue’s Grocery in Vancouver. So far in 2019, B.C. lottery players have redeemed more than $80 million in prize-winning Lotto 6/49 tickets.
