“I couldn’t find my family so I decided to check my ticket,” he said. “My family thought it was a joke until we all went and checked together.”

The win will allow Eliseeff to spend more time with his loved ones. “We will celebrate with a nice dinner for now and then go to the Philippines next year to visit family and friends,” he said.   

Eliseeff is also looking forward to buying a new house and upgrading his car.

“I have had to move multiple times over the years. It will be nice to have a place of my own.” 

The Super Save gas station on Kingsway and Macpherson Ave in Burnaby sold the winning ticket.
