Lotto win worth $1 million

“You never think it’s going to be you,” says Kelowna lotto winner Nick Pisio.                                                                                                                  

A comfortable retirement, travel, and maybe a new car are in store for Pisio after he matched all 10 numbers to win $1 million in the Lotto 6/49 guaranteed prize draw on Nov. 7.

Pisio purchased his winning ticket at Mac’s convenience store on Springfield Road.

“I was there to buy a couple more and check the ones I had,” said Pisio. “I had the staff scan the ticket – I couldn’t believe it! Everyone was shocked.

“The first person I told was my wife. I told her to sit down, and she thought something bad had happened. She was jumping up and down … she even swore a little,” he said with a laugh. “We enjoy spending our free time with our grandchildren. Now with an earlier retirement in our future, we can do that even more. We have no more worries.”

While Pisio is still coming to terms with the win, travel is definitely in the plans.

“A holiday in Maui next spring is already in the works. That, and maybe a new car," he said.
