Pinoy wins $32.7 million lotto


Patrick Estacio could not believe he was Canada’s latest millionaire when interviewed by TVA Nouvelles.

The 41-year-old Montrealer said  “It’s so surreal.   By buying a lottery ticket, I did not expect to win the big prize! “

The Philippine-born Estacio  has lived in Montreal for only two years. Until now, he had to hold two jobs simultaneously to support himself.

“On my way to work, I thought I had to validate my ticket,” Estacio told the reporter. When I looked, I thought I had won $ 32,700. But when Christine , a Loto-Québec employee,  came, she told me I was a millionaire! “

Though still in a daze and doesn’t know yet what to do with his winnings,  Estacio says he intends to keep a rather simple lifestyle.

The 41-year-old man was living in a rooming house, but he now plans to buy a house quickly.
