A man from Burnaby, a city in British Columbia, Canada, was reminded to check his lottery ticket as his co-workers won $1, but it turned out that while he did won too, his prize was way way larger.

Binxiao Qin was inspired to purchase a Lotto Max ticket earlier this month because a group of his work colleagues were buying their own.

He told the B.C. Lottery Corporation, "They were buying their tickets, so I thought ‘okay, I'll follow along, I'll buy too."

After the December 10 draw, his co-workers reminded him to check his ticket as they won $1, so they thought maybe Qin also won a prize. It turns out, he did won $1, plus another $999,999!

The winner of a $1-million Maxmillions prize said to BCLC that he and his fiancée were shocked, "My fiancée was so surprised. We found out on the BCLC Lotto! App (the day after the draw). I showed her the phone and we saw the $1-million prize."

He did not say how his co-workers reacted.

The top lottery prize in the December 10 draw was $60 million, which remains unclaimed. A resident from B.C. and two from Ontario were able to match six of the seven numbers, plus the bonus number, claiming prizes worth $101,783.90, meaning Qin won more off his Maxmillions ticket than those who matched the winning numbers in the main draw. 

Three lucky others also won $1 million in the same draw.

Qin was super lucky. The odds of winning his prize are approximately 1 in 33,294,800, according to BCLC.

The odds of winning the Lotto Max jackpot are the same.

tremendous luck of this gentleman, it gave me a little laugh that his colleagues made him remember that they had won 1 dollar, and that way he realized that he had won 1 million dollars, that's crazy, the probability of winning is 1 in 30 million, and he has succeeded.

many spectacular gains with beautiful stories that often attract people. Players dream in the skin of the winners or would like to have such a win, but it is very difficult and if they do not try to play, they will not have the chance to win and to make a beautiful dream come true

it is impressive the amount of money he could get with a simple ticket, but what surprises me is the probability that the player has to win, it is crazy, it is almost impossible, with a probability of 1 in 30 million, it is to go crazy when you get a prize, this young man has won it, congratulations and enjoy the prize.

thats how things work in big countries!with small number and big number of players,you can win great amount of money!
 geseco1231/12/2021 14:23:49 GMT
luck is like that, and this player has been very lucky, the investment he made is very small and the reward was huge, everyone can have that chance to win, but really luck was with him, sometimes we can not explain, but it happens and enjoy the prize.

many people play and win millions, when they don't expect it. Others are anxious, dreaming of earning millions, but never earning big money. Luck differs and we must hope that maybe, we will win in future big sums.
 geseco1201/01/2022 14:52:24 GMT
you are very right, we should not be expecting to win the big prize, nor be always focused on that, we should let it happen spontaneously, the odds of winning are less in these games, we should always be calm, the least expected things happen sometimes, good luck to all in this new year.
 dule-vu01/01/2022 14:53:06 GMT
its big luck to win 1 million with such a small luck!what a end of new year for this man!
 geseco1202/01/2022 21:03:36 GMT
there is nothing else that makes you happy to win that amount of money at the end of the year, that's crazy, but they deserve it, they play a lot and at any time it's time to win, hopefully some news of Latinos who can win, I do not see news like that, I think the Asian and Europeans play much more.
 dule-vu02/01/2022 21:03:43 GMT
This luck to win with just 1 $ and that happiness can only describe him!
 eloy221/01/2022 03:18:13 GMT
What surprising news! who would have thought to win 1 million never imagined that he had won congratulations he deserves it he is a great player he plays a lot I hope this year goes well for him good luck
 CALICUL21/01/2022 03:21:24 GMT
The December 60 million lottery prize is very interesting, especially since it has not been claimed, but even a million dollars after taxes, means something serious. With that money you're doing something serious and that is a good thing
 eloy222/01/2022 06:14:23 GMT
ohhh he didn't imagine winning 60 million that's great he deserves it congratulations keep playing mumca you give up good luck to you I wish you the best
 dule-vu22/01/2022 08:50:23 GMT
