Langley couple begin new year as millionaires
It was a very happy start to 2014 for Langley residents Colin and Elena Maynes. The happy couple rang in the New Year with a $5 million jackpot win on the Jan. 1, Lotto 6/49 draw.
Colin told B.C. Lottery that he froze when the lottery retailer at Willowbrook Mall told him he was a winner.
“The clerk printed off the results and handed them to me,” said Maynes. “I was in total shock. I was so stunned I finished my errands around the mall before calling my wife to share the news. She was in disbelief.”
The Maynes are the first Lotto 6/49 winner of the year in B.C. The ticket was purchased at Petro Canada on 184 Street and 64 Avenue in Cloverdale.
The family plans to pay off their house before looking into buying a new car and taking a trip to Cyprus to visit family.
