BC man wants to watch a game at every NFL stadium after $1M lotto win

When Joshua Stan discovered he had won the lottery, everyone he wanted to tell was asleep.

He checked his Lotto 6/49 ticket from the April 3 draw online at 1 am and discovered he had won a life-changing prize of $1 million.

“It was 1 am and I didn’t want to wake anyone,” Stan explained. "But then my mom woke up. She was happy for me!”

While the house was quiet when the White Rock resident discovered his good fortune, his mind was certainly racing.

He said “the first thought that came to mind was, ‘How am I going to change my life and my family’s life?’”

For starters, he plans on using some of the windfall on a down payment for a home, as well as helping out his parents and doing some travelling.

Being a big football fan, the travelling will likely be centred around his desire to traverse the United States for an experience die hard NFL fans often dream about.

“I want to be able to watch a football game at every stadium,” he explained.

Stan says he’s incredibly fortunate to win $1 million, which will provide him with support and the ability to take care of the people he loves.

The winning ticket was purchased at the Semiahmoo Town Pantry in the Chevron gas station on Martin Drive in Surrey.
