BC man taking his daughter to Disneyland after $2M lotto win

Alan Sevillo was at the mall with his daughter and wife when he remembered he had an unchecked BC/49 ticket from the June 5 draw.

The Surrey resident went to a lottery kiosk and scanned his ticket, which produced a lot of zeros on the screen.

He had won BC/49’s top prize of $2 million, which earned him an embrace from the person working at the lottery kiosk.

“My wife did not believe me! When she saw the retailer hug me, then she believed me,” Sevillo explained.

He said the feeling of a major lottery win is pure excitement and it will be a big help for his family’s future.

Like a quarterback after winning the Super Bowl, Sevillo will be taking his daughter to Disneyland to celebrate the life-changing windfall.

He also has plans to purchase a second vehicle for the family.

“My wife and I share a car and it can be challenging with our daughter’s school schedule,” he explained. “Another car will make our days simpler.”

Sevillo purchased the winning ticket at London Drugs on 66th Avenue in Langley.
