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.
