Vito Halasan, a resident of Surrey luckily got all the six combinations right after he celebrated his 58th birthday. 

"I remember scanning my ticket and seeing all these numbers. I have really blurry vision so I had to hold the ticket right up to my face. I couldn’t believe it," Halasan was quoted as saying.

After learning it, he immediately told his daughter.

"He sat me down at the table and then he whispered really quietly to me that he won $7 million dollars. I didn’t believe him. We had to check online several times," his daughter said. 

Halasan could now give the life he had promised to his family since migrating from the Philippines in 2009. He has three children and four grandchildren, but no plans of quitting his job - planned to reduce working hours.

"I buy lottery tickets so I can dream. I dream of being able to take care of my kids and make their future better. Now we’ll be able to buy a nice house for my children and grandchildren," he said.
