Over 9 Million Reasons to Smile

A lotto player from Vancouver who won Canada Lotto 649 jackpot on Wednesday, September 10, 2014, was presented with an oversized presentational check yesterday, and with $9,225,610.30 written next to his name, it's not surprising he wore such a winning smile.

Like many lottery winners before him Keith Best said he plans to take an extended vacation, but when he told lottery official how he picked his numbers it came as quite a surprise.

Best said his numbers are usually based on the temperatures of his favorite cities mixed with important dates from his life.

"I try to pick numbers logically, but these just jumped out at me," he said.
