Surrey's resident recently became the latest winner in Lotto 6/49, combining all six numbers from the Draw on April 27, 2019, just days after his birthday.
58-year-old Vito Halasan won a $ 7 million jackpot – but he will be different than most.
Unlike many other winners, he says he has no plans to leave his job as a janitor, though he will cut his hours.
Rather, money will help take care of his family.
"I buy lottery tickets so I can dream," says Halasan. "I dream of being able to care for my children and make their future better. Now we can buy a nice house for our children and grandchildren. "
Halasan moved to Canada from the Philippines in 2009. His recent profits will go to his three children and four grandchildren – something that is on the top of the bucket list.
"I remember checking out my ticket and seeing all those figures," says Halasan. "I have a really blurred vision, so I had to hold the bag to my face. I could not believe it.
