A Kelowna man is preparing for a vacation after winning a $1 million guaranteed prize in Lotto 6/49.

Amar Singh says he had a difficult time convincing his wife the win was real when he discovered the extra zeroes in his PlayNow.com account, where he purchased the ticket for the May 20 draw.

“She had said, ‘No, you didn’t win, you were probably playing a demo.' She just kept saying, 'no, no it was a demo win' - she didn’t believe me,”  Singh says.

In addition to plans to buy a new home in Kelowna, Singh said he wants to take his family on a vacation once its safe to do so again.

“We haven’t gone on a family vacation in 10 years. Our kids are growing up, and we want to go somewhere for a week or two weeks,” he says.
