Tai Trinh won the $65 million biggest Lotto Max jackpot in Alberta history and ties up with the largest Lotto Max winning in Canada.
Buying coffee and a Lotto Max ticket from a local shell is a daily routine for the 63-year old Vietnamese. Tai Trinh, was extraordinarily cool in winning the jackpot. He did not tell any of his family and friends and they only found out when he claimed the prize. Unlike most jackpot winners, Trinh has no grand plans on how he will spend his money and said that he will just keep it in the bank for now and get on with his life as is. He admits that the money will indeed make his life easier.
Trinh does not believe in lucky numbers, so the $65 million winning numbers came from a $6 quick pick. The winning numbers from the October 4, 2019 draw are 20, 31, 35, 36, 39, 42, and 44. He is the 200th winner from the Prairies and Territories to be made a millionaire by Lotto Max since the game launched in 2009. His winnings ended a 6-year dry spell in Calgary, with the last major jackpot winning of $40 million was won on May 2013. Trinh was one of the Vietnamese people who came to Canada in 1980. Another Vietnamese just recently claimed a $60 million jackpot winnings from October of last year’s draw had also migrated to Canada in the 1980’s.
