An ordinary resident of Canada hit the jackpot about a year ago. However, his next steps were quite unpredictable.
Bon Truong, a landscaper, was buying lottery tickets for thirty years in a row. Every time he was choosing the same numbers. Eventually, one Lotto Max draw brought Mr. Truong a record jackpot of 60 million Canadian dollars.
It might sound weird, but Bon continued working and did not inform anyone about his win. Only ten months later he received his cheque at a news conference which took place at the end of August.
According to Mr. Truong, he needed time to make sure that his family was ready for all those fundamental changes in their life. Bon shared with the reporters that he had come to Canada with empty pockets after the Vietnam War and was working very hard to provide a better life for his family. Mr. Truong is planning to spend his winnings on paying off the bills and buying a new house. The rest he is going to save for the future. But first of all the whole family will go on holiday to celebrate the life-changing event.
