He won the money on February 19.
Speaking to the InBrampton in Canada Murambiwa said: “I thought, this is not happening! I scanned the ticket a dozen more times. It was a shock to the system. I even took a photo of the Ticket Checker!

Murambiwa says he plans to treat himself to a new car and will put the rest of his winnings into savings.
“As a realtor, I handle big cheques all the time. It feels incredible that this one is mine,” he said.
“I don’t know what to say – this feels like a dream.”
