‘It Hasn’t Hit Me Yet’, said Ram Singh of Surrey, the latest Indo-Canadian Winner of Lotto Max Maxmillion Prize.
SURREY – Another Indo-Canadian from Surrey has won a cool $1 million Lotto Max prize.
Ram Singh, a business owner who says he works seven days a week, is still absorbing the good news. “My wife said ‘we won’ and I went blank. It hasn’t hit me yet.”
The hard-working Singh family from Surrey is investing and planning for its future after discovering it matched all seven numbers to win a $1 million Maxmillion prize on the Lotto Max draw on October 5.
Ram and his wife Sushil say they intend to invest in real estate and give the rest of the winnings to their children.
“I was thinking if I ever won the lottery I would invest with my kids and get them a townhouse,” said Ram.
Ram, who has been playing the lottery for more than 30 years and Lotto Max since it started in 2009, is maintaining a level-headed approach to his good fortune. “I don’t get excited too quickly,” he jested.
Ram and Sushil are the 27th Lotto Max Maxmillions winners in B.C. in 2018.
Two weeks ago, DESIBUZZCanada reported that Garry Sharma of Surrey had won the big $1 Million from the Guaranteed Prize draw on October 6.
Sharma purchased the winning ticket on PlayNow.com. After returning home from a family vacation in Banff, he checked his email and saw a message congratulating him on his win.
“I was really shocked to see so many zeros when I logged into my account,” he said. Sharma immediately shared the good news with his wife. “She was just as shocked. We checked the account many times before realizing we had won; we jumped in joy!” he added.
Sharma also shared the good news with his close friends and colleagues. “They were happy to see a normal guy like me win,” he laughed. “It’s been extraordinary, delightful and life-changing to see the reactions.”
