Abbotsford Trucker is B.C.'s Newest Multi-Millionaire

RICHMOND, BRITISH COLUMBIA--(Marketwire - March 10, 2010) - "Millionaire March" continued today in B.C. with the fourth major lottery jackpot winner this month visiting BCLC to collect a multi-million dollar prize.

Abbotsford's Ivan Catchpaw has now received his half of last Friday's huge $19 Million LOTTO MAX jackpot, after fellow jackpot-winner Kevin Bowser from Houston, B.C. claimed his $9.5 Million earlier yesterday afternoon.

Catchpaw, who learned of his win over the weekend, has already quit his job as a truck driver and has even ordered a new Dodge Ram. "It's candy-apple red with a few extras," said the 53-year-old.

Catchpaw bought his winning ticket at Shefield & Sons in Seven Oaks Mall on South Fraser Way in Abbotsford.

Meantime, yet another jackpot winner has come forward.

Nancy Miners of Prince George matched 4/4 numbers on the February 19th EXTRA draw to win the top prize of $500,000.

The 56-year-old elementary school teacher says she's already making plans to travel.

"My daughter, Meg, and I are going to Europe for a month," she said. "I've always wanted to go, so we're going to visit Ireland, Scotland and England."

Sounds like a jolly good time!

Miners purchased her lucky Quick Pick ticket at the Canadian Tire gas bar on Domano Boulevard in Prince George.

EXTRA and LOTTO MAX can be played at all BCLC retail locations and online at PlayNow.com.
