Ron Cumiskey said he bought a $10 quick-pick ticket in Aldergrove for the May 27 draw, checked his numbers online that night, and shook his head in disbelief.

“You hope you win — you don’t expect it — and when you do, it’s just unbelievable,” he said.

“I don’t think anyone can fathom — even the past winners, did they ever think they’d spend $10 and win a million or half a million or $10 million or whatever?”

He said the first thing he did was call his boss.

“I said, ‘I’m retiring.’ You know that guy in Aldergrove that won $24 million? That’s me. No bloody way!”

Ron Cuminskey said he'll be sharing the cash with his daughters to help them pay off their mortgages.
