$60 million winnings claimed ten months later

Edmonton's Bon Truong big winner

An Edmonton man has cashed his jackpot-winning ticket 10 months after a Lotto Max $60 million draw.

Bon Truong says he realized he'd won the day after the draw, but wanted to take some time before claiming the money to allow his family a chance to figure things out.

“I started to think about what this win would mean for my family,” he said. “I realized it’s going to change a lot of things and I wanted to make sure we were all ready and prepared for those changes,” he said.

Along with paying off all his bills, buying a new home, and saving for the future, Truong says he wants to take his family on a vacation.

The winning ticket was bought at Pure Casino Yellowhead, and is tied for the winningest ticket in Alberta history.

Another $60 million jackpot was handed out in 2017.
