'Hole-digger Bill' Wins $21M On Lotto

52-year-old Bill Laharty is currently living the lotto dream, recently winning the $21-million jackpot in Saturday’s Lotto 6/49 draw.

Be a goal digger

From “hole digger” to “goal digger”

Bill Laharty has worked for 20 years digging holes and building anchors for hydro poles.

“Now, I don’t have to do that anymore.”
After playing the lotto for 15 years the old fashioned way, he decided to start buying lottery tickets online and it’s definitely paid off in a big way:

"I've already bought a couple of cars. I haven't paid for them yet, but I bought them," he said, grinning. Two BMWs — one for me and one for my friend."

Laharty, who has called Nanaimo home for 22 years, described his fortune in one word:


“Ever since I discovered I won, it’s like I’ve been in a dream.”

"I checked my account and there were a lot of zeros and numbers and I phoned and they said I'd won," Laherty said.

I saw this big number and had to count all the zeros. I couldn’t believe it and no one else does either. My first feeling was disbelief. Is this really happening?

“I expect this will really change my life,” added Laharty, who’s unmarried and has no children. “I’ll travel the world and help out my family (four brothers and sisters and 14 nieces and nephews) and friends. It’s awesome.”

Bill Laharty celebrating his lottery win

Bill, who now constantly has a huge grin on his face, says that he plans to travel to exotic places, including Bora Bora.

It’s not the first time that someone from Laharty’s Vancouver Island town has won a substantial amount on the lottery, but it’s definitely the biggest win so far.

In 2010 another Nanaimo resident scooped a $7.6-million prize.

"It not only changes my life, it changes my family's life, my friend's life," he said. "It's a lot of money. It's more money then I'm ever going to need."

Laharty said that he also has plans to buy a condo “"somewhere exotic", retire completely and travel.

There are hundreds of millions of lotto players, both online and offline that play the lottery every day for a chance to win millions of Dollars, Euros and Pounds. So if you too would like a man cave fit for a king, a new car, a European vacation, a condo in Boro Boro – buy a lotto ticket now right here at PlayHugeLottos.com, and give yourself the chance to win big!

In a blink of an eye you could be richer that your wildest dreams, with more than enough money to buy anything you, your family or friends desire.

Buy that ticket to freedom, get your life on track, and be part of something bigger. After all, someone will win, and even if it is not you, it may be someone like yourself, someone in your situation that you can identify with and I will more than likely write about.

If you want to give yourself the opportunity to change your life completely with either 127 million Euro SuperEnaLotto or the $127 million US Powerball jackpot in your bank account, we suggest you buy a lottery ticket today!

Good luck gaming!
