$1 million lottery for Delta colleagues

A group of people won $1 millionĀ  Lotto 6/49 draw, the BCLC said, and their trustee, Lyle Mattern, checked the results online during this holiday season.

Nothing would be greater than this, Fifteen people who work together won an early Christmas present, the BC Lottery Corporation announced.

“Once I confirmed we won, I started emailing the group and that’s when the excited calls and texts started coming in,” he said. “What a great Christmas present.”

The colleagues have been playing together for two years now. The live across the Lower Mainland, and the winning ticket was bought the Save-On-Foods on Kingsway in Burnaby.

“Nobody wants to quit this group now,” Mattern said. “I bet some people will even want to join our group once the word gets out that we won. We already have our tickets for (Friday night’s) draw so who knows, maybe we’ll be back here next week!”
