From The BBC:

Harry Black, 66, said he had played the same numbers for 53 years.

The C$63m jackpot was split among four tickets, two of which were his. Had he only purchased one, the prize would have been split three ways and his winnings would have been C$10m less.

The British Columbia man had kept the tickets since the 13 April drawing while making plans for the money.

He works in the film industry, and says he will not retire but will use his money to go on vacation, build a house, invest, and share with family and friends.
