Victoria Man Finally Claims his CAD$ 13 million Prize

When retiree Duarte Almeida heard a CAD$ 13 million prize had not been claimed in Victoria, British Columbia, he never dreamed he may be the missing winner. He finally checked his ticket earlier this week and couldn't believe his luck when he discovered he'd won CAD$ 13,688,924 in the August 2, 2014, Canada Lotto 649 draw.

"I knew someone in Victoria had won but I never thought it would be me," Almeida said.

Almeida and his wife are still discussing how to best use the money, but say a new truck and a vacation are near the top of the list.
