New home, cross-Canada road trip at the top of Victoria man’s list after $1M lotto win

A Victoria man is one step closer to his goal of purchasing a home after a monumental lottery win earlier this month.

Beau Williams’ life-changing win came in the June 7 Lotto Max draw, when he won a $1-million Maxmillions prize.

“I was at a Save-On-Foods and had to check my ticket five times because I didn’t believe it. I gave it to the cashier to check and I was in disbelief,” said Williams.

“My girlfriend was the first person I shared the news with — she was excited, and also in disbelief!”

While Williams is looking at a new home with his winnings, he is also looking to leave home for a trip that is more than two years in the making.

“I’ve always wanted to do a road trip across Canada,” he explained. “A couple years ago, my girlfriend and I were going to drive across the country and then COVID hit.”

As for how it feels to win $1-million?

“It takes a lot of stress off of me,” Williams noted. “It’s unreal!”

The winning ticket was purchased at the Shoppers Drug Mart on West Saanich Road.
