LIGHTHOUSE KEEPER HAS TO WAIT TWO MONTHS TO COLLECT LOTTERY JACKPOT

A British Columbia man said he had to wait two months to collect his lottery jackpot of over $700,000 because he couldn’t get leave from his job as a lighthouse keeper. 

Ivan Dubinsky said he buys his tickets online because he has to always be at the lighthouse near Port Hardy to perform his duties, including keeping the lighthouse grounds and sending weather reports to marine vessels and aircraft. 

Dubinsky used the lottery’s PlayNow.com website to enter the November 29th Lotto 6/49 drawing and won the top prize of $764,856.37. He said it was two months before he could find someone to relieve him so he could collect his prize.
