Which makes him the city’s luckiest guy? Win two big lottery jackpots in four years.
Burnaby David O’brien took to the house on 20 June 2020 the Lotto 6/49$1 million Guaranteed Prize, saying: winning feels “amazing.”
This is in large part because the Burnaby man has won $ 5 million playing Lotto 6/49, May 4, 2016, the date on which he matches all six numbers to win the jackpot of more than four years.
O’brien, who bought his latest winning ticket at a 7-Eleven Store on Kingsway Street in Burnaby, has been playing Lotto 6/49 for as long as he can remember. He said that his wife did not believe him when he broke the good news.
“She thought I was joking when I said to him,” he recalled after having claimed his prize with the help of BCLC alternate for the award-application process. They have celebrated over cake and coffee in the evening where he learned that he had won.
Of his plans for his second major victory? Since he is retired, traveling is on the top of his list.
“I’ve always loved travelling and I’ve always wanted to travel to India,” O’brien said.
And he will continue to play the lottery? “Yes, I really like to play,” he said.
Up to now, in 2020, the B. C. lottery players have exchanged more than $ 69 million in winnings from Lotto 6/49.
