Prince George resident Colin Turick won $2 million when he matched all six numbers during the BC/49 lottery draw on May 14.
He bought and checked the lucky ticket at the North Nechako Food Store.
Turick is buying his dream motorhome to tour the States with his wife, he said.
“This win means I’m able to enjoy my retirement,” Turick said.
Turick recalled how he discovered his big win.
“I checked my ticket at the kiosk and thought, ‘I must be reading this wrong… the machine is broken… something can’t be right!’”
Naturally, he shared the news with his wife right away.
“She was in disbelief,” he added.
Turick said he has a hard time describing how it feels to be a multi-millionaire.
“I can’t even think of a word… disbelief, I think. I am in shock! This will change my life for sure,” he added.
In 2021, British Columbians won more than $17 million in BC/49 prizes.
