“My wife said, ‘we won’ and I went blank. It hasn’t hit me yet.”

The couple says they plan on investing in real estate and giving the rest of the winnings to their children.

“I was thinking if I ever won the lottery I would invest with my kids and get them a townhouse,” said Ram.

Ram and Sushil are the 27th Lotto Max Maxmillions winners in B.C. in 2018.
