Lotto Max player Donald Pilon said he “screamed for joy and jumped up and down” when he checked his group’s Lotto Max ticket from the June 30, 2020 draw and realized it won $145,054.
The Langley resident, who purchased the ticket at Delta Self Serve on 120th Street in North Delta, is the “captain” of his group of work pals that buys tickets together, and had just arrived home when he checked the winning ticket on the BCLC Lotto! App.
“I sent a message to the group lottery chat to tell them that we had won,” Pilon said. “It was everyone’s days off. They were all super excited.”
The group of winners say they feel “very fortunate” and plan to get together to celebrate the win.
Lottery players who are part of a group should always appoint someone to coordinate collecting participant's money, buying the group's tickets, tracking group winnings and posting results. When purchasing as a group, it's always a good idea to have a record of which group members have contributed to the ticket purchases. BCLC has a Group Play Agreement Form on bclc.com to make it easier to manage group play.
