Pinoy wins $32.7 million in Canada lotto
A 41-year-old Filipino worker in Montreal has become one of Canada's latest millionaire after winning the 6/49 Lotto jackpot.
Patrick Estacio described as "surreal" his winning of the Montreal Grand 6/49 Lotto Prize of $32.7 million, according to a
report on Journal de Montreal
"By buying a lottery ticket, I do not expect to win the jackpot," Estracio in an interview on TVA Nouvelles as reported by Journal de Montreal.
Estacio, who chose the winning combination 06-09-30-37-43-49, said he was on his way to work when he decided to have his lotto ticket validated.
He said at first he thought he only won $32,700. He said he was surprised when the employee of the lotto outlet told him he is a millionaire.
Estracio, who reportedly works two jobs to support himself in Canada, said he has yet to decide on how he will spend the money.
The lucky Filipino has been living in a rooming house in Montreal for two years, the report said. —
