Life-changing money

A Port Coquitlam man is looking forward to a festive Christmas now that he's $500,000 richer.

Robert Power says he plans to visit family and buy a new vehicle after his big win.

“I couldn’t believe it. When I checked the ticket, I thought I had the wrong date,” said Robert Power.

He matched four out of four Lotto Max Extra numbers to win $500,000 on the Nov. 9 draw.

“It was nerve-wracking – to be honest it’s still sinking in," he said.
 
Along with a two-week break from work, he’s looking forward to a little car shopping. “I’ve never owned a new vehicle. I want a brand new Ford Explorer.”
 
Power says he's been buying lottery tickets for years. “It’s my routine,” said Power. “It’s very rare that I miss it. It’s automatic. I buy gas, I get a ticket. I buy groceries, I get a ticket. But when it comes to something like this, the first thing I think about is family.”
