Vernon resident Wade Hardie won Saturday's guaranteed prize of $1 million in the Lotto 6/49 draw.

Hardie purchased the winning ticket at his usual location, Hunter's Store in Vernon, according to a BCLC media release.

At first, Hardie's wife didn't believe they'd won, insisting on checking the ticket at Hunter's Store to verify.

The big win comes at a perfect time, as Hardie and his wife will soon be celebrating their 50th wedding anniversary.

“We’re coming up on 50 years of being married,” Hardie says in the release. “We’ll be having a big family dinner to celebrate, but maybe we can make our anniversary extra special this year.”
