Man Plays Same Lotto Numbers For 20 Years, Finally Hits It Big Bon Truong always knew his lucky lotto numbers would eventually pay off, but he probably didn’t realize how long it would take. The Edmonton, Alberta man won $60 million ($45M USD) playing the LOTTO MAX back in October, hitting it big from the same combination that he’s been using for two decades. Interestingly, Truong sat on his winning ticket for 10 months, admitting, “I realized it’s going to change a lot of things and I wanted to make sure we were all ready and prepared for those changes.” According to the Western Canada Lottery Corporation, the prize is tied for the largest ever in the province. Ever won anything from playing the lottery? What did you do with the earnings? Do you play the same numbers every drawing?
