A 41-year-old Overseas Filipino Worker who works in Montreal, Canada won the latest draw in Lotto 6/49 jackpot with a total winning of $32.7 million.
Patrick Estacio described it as “surreal.” In an interview on TVA Nouvelles he said that “By buying a lottery ticket, I do not expect to win the jackpot.”
He was on his way to work when he decided to have his lotto ticket validated. At first, he thought he only won $32,700, and he was surprised when the store staff told him that he is a millionaire.
Mr. Estracio works two jobs to support himself in Canada, and he has yet to decide on how he will spend the money. He is planning to buy a house quickly as he has been living in a rooming house in Montreal for two years.
Mr. Estacio won with the winning combination 06-09-30-37-43-49.
