Local couple claims $1 million lotto prize

They received their cheque for $1,000,001 and a free play on November 20.

Both the Jones' come from large families, and told the B.C. Lottery Corporation they will be sharing their winnings with their loved ones.
"I couldn’t believe the number of zeros,” says Robert. "It was such a happy moment. The store clerk even high-fived me when I brought my ticket to the counter!"
The winning ticket was sold at an undisclosed location in Fort St. John.
