A Nanaimo man is a newly minted millionaire and has started planning dream vacations.
James Honeyman won $1 million playing Lotto 6/49 in the July 23 draw, announced a B.C. Lottery Corporation press release this week.
Honeyman purchased his ticket via PlayNow.com. He checked his ticket using his phone app on a Sunday morning and saw the prize amount pop up, “which was unbelievable.”
He and his wife are planning to travel to some dream destinations including a luxury cruise through the Panama Canal. Honeyman said the win is life-changing.
“It means my wife and I can enjoy our retirement and go on trips we’ve always wanted to take,” he said.
