A Canadian man demonstrated consistency and patience playing a set of lottery numbers for 20 years before earning the largest win of $60 million in the lottery company’s history.
Bon Truong won $60 million in October 2018, he however waited for ten months to cash out his winning as he felt overwhelmed by it.
As soon as he saw the winning numbers, Truong went to the store and had the clerk print them — just to be certain, he said. He took the numbers home and double checked them for hours.
“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.”
Truong’s winning numbers were 2, 3, 4, 8, 9, 20 and 30. He told WCLC those numbers are a combination of important dates and family birthdays.
“The first thing I thought was, ‘I’m going to be able to pay off everything!’ and I was happy just to do that,” he said.
Truong told WCLC he first plans on buying his family a new home and putting money away to save for their future, with a vacation in the works.
