The Christmas tradition of opening a present the night before the big guy in red arrives is something many families enjoy.
But for someone in Kamloops a gift revealed the eve before Santa makes his way down the chimney is one that will be hard to beat.
Someone in Kamloops or the North Thompson won a million dollars on Lotto 6/49, Christmas eve.
According to the B.C. Lottery Corporation Saturday’s (Dec.24) main 6/49 jackpot was not won and will be carried over to an $11 million prize for Wednesday’s draw, however there were five guaranteed $1-million prizes awarded.
And one of those winners bought a ticket in the Kamloops-North Thompson area. Other $1-million winners Saturday purchased tickets in Burnaby, Ontario and Western Canada (2).
It’s unclear where exactly the Kamloops-North Thompson ticket was purchased at this time.
