See who won the million-dollar 649 prize in Port Alberni last week

Richard Zoet of Port Alberni is ready to let the good times roll after winning the Guaranteed $1 Million Prize on the June 7, 2017 Lotto 6/49 draw.

“I feel happy winning the lottery,” exclaimed Zoet. “It’s going to feel good when I drive my new sports car, and it’s going to feel great when I buy my mom a much-needed new ride!”

Zoet expects the winning experience to continue when news hits that he won the lottery.

“There was a lot of buzz about who in town won the lottery,” smiled Zoet. “It’s exciting because I’m proof lottery wins happen in B.C. – and in Port Alberni no less!”

The winning ticket was purchased at A-1 Convenience Store in Port Alberni.
