In what might just be the best day ever, a Canadian man has won a lottery jackpot on the day he retired, which was also his birthday. Vancouver’s Ping Kuen Shum bought a lotto ticket on 28 April as he was in high spirits from his birthday and the last day of his working life. That night, the British Columbia Lottery Corporation confirmed that he had just won USD$1.5Million.
“It’s unbelievable that all three events happened on the same day…I have worked hard for so many years and I’m looking forward to sharing this fortune with my family.”
Ping said. He is planning a trip to China with his newly acquired funds.
