Filipino Worker Wins $32.7 Million in Canadian Lottery

A Filipino worker in Montreal, Canada has become one of the country’s latest millionaires after he won $32.7 million (P1.2 billion) in the 6/49 lotto jackpot.

According to Journal de Montreal, Patrick Estacio initially though he won $32,700 on his chosen combination 06-09-30-37-43-49.

“By buying a lottery ticket, I do not expect to win the jackpot,” Estacio in an interview.

He said he was surprised when an employee of the lotto outlet told him he is a millionaire.

Estacio, 41, who reportedly works two jobs to support himself in Canada, said he has yet to decide on how he will spend the money.

The lucky Filipino has been living in a boarding house in Montreal for two years, the report said.
