B.C.’s newest multi-millionaires will be in Kamloops on Wednesday morning to pick up their loot — all $25.9 million of it.
A Merritt couple had the lone winning ticket in the Feb. 22 Lotto Max draw. They matched all seven numbers — 6, 31, 33, 34, 43, 44, 46 — to win the grand prize.
The store at which the winning ticket was purchased has become a lucky charm in recent years.
Shehbaz Bhown, owner of Shah’s Courtesy Corner Store in Lower Nicola, confirmed the winning ticket was sold at his store.
The store will receive a $2,000 prize as well, Bhown said, coming at an opportune time as the store was robbed last month.
It is not the first time the corner store has sold a winning ticket. Merritt’s Mitchell Shuter won more than $11 million in 2013 with a Lotto 6/49 ticket he purchased at Shah’s Courtesy Corner Store.
