The winner of the other $7 million Lotto 6/49 ticket bought in Richmond has now come forward.

Eddie Uy of Richmond won the jackpot from the August 3 draw. His is the second winning Lotto 6/49 ticket over $7 million sold in Richmond in August. Fisherman Van Hen Lu, and his wife Thieu Mai Ly, won a $7.2 million jackpot on August 17.

Uy has played the same numbers for 21 years, matching all six on the Lotto 6/49 draw to win the $7 Million jackpot.

“I was going through my usual routine when I checked my tickets; I woke up early, made my lunch and got ready for work,” said Uy as he received his cheque at B.C. Lottery Corporation’s Vancouver office this afternoon. “Then I rubbed my eyes and couldn’t believe what I was seeing.”

Uy’s future plans include buying a new house and investing for retirement.
