A lottery player from Coquitlam was overwhelmed by the size of his win. Ian Hirsch had to check the results a few times before getting to believe that he had indeed landed a $12.8 million 6/49 lottery jackpot.
The winner checked online, had his wife do a double check and then went to a store to confirm it. Now that they have the jackpot check his first priority is to get a big TV set and build a beautiful house around it. The lucky man says part of the windfall will be used to help his children. He and his wife also plan to visit Europe and Hawaii.
