Tamil Canadian real estate agent wins $20M lottery

Velauthan Vamadevan, a real estate agent based in Mississauga, is now $20 million richer after winning the jackpot from the Oct. 18 Lotto 6/49 draw. He has been buying lottery tickets for the last 20 years, and this time around made the purchase just hours before the Saturday draw – on his son’s birthday.

Velauthan said he purchased his ticket just hours before the draw on Saturday. “It was my son’s birthday and I decided to give it a shot. I was at the gas station filling up, so I purchased one Quick Pick.”

“I never expected it, I never thought I would win,” said the 62-year-old Velauthan. The father of 3 has not decided how he’ll utilize his winnings.
