After buying both Lotto Max and Lotto 6/49 tickets for over 20 years now without any big win, Youn-Sae Lee wasn’t holding his breath for a jackpot win, after buying a Lotto Max ticket for September 12th’s draw. But that is precisely what Lee came to find; that he had a winning ticket in his hand!

Though usually selecting his own numbers, Lee opted for the Quick Pick option on this particular ticket, coming up with the numbers 5, 6, 8, 13, 24, 37 and 46, and a bonus ball of 30. Thinking his win was a mere CAD $14,000, Lee remained calm while the store clerk validated his win. When they both saw together that the winning amount was really a staggering CAD $14 million, “the clerk was more excited than I was”, said the lucky Canadian!

Seeking the advice of his family and financial professionals, Lee still has yet to decide how he will spend his new fortune, and for now is keeping his money safely in the bank. Head over to play Lotto  6/49, where the current jackpot is right behind Lee’s, at a cool CAD $13 million!
