Danica Flores and Mark Wroblewski matched all seven numbers in the June 1 draw to win a Maxmillion prize split with a winner in Ontario.

“I see winners celebrate big lottery wins on TV but I never thought this could happen to me,” Flores said in a release sent out by the B.C. Lottory Corporation.

“We are still in shock and haven’t been able to think about what do with the money yet,” said Wroblewski, adding that the win feels real now that they’ve received the prize.

Flores and Wroblewski plan to share the news with friends and pick out fun items for their children before sitting down and planing their family’s future.

Lottery tickets purchased in B.C. fund programs across the province.
