The winning ticket was drawn out of a barrel and the winner was announced as "Barry Delaney of Port Moody" The anchors working the broadcast joked that the winner might have been their colleague Barry Deley, who lives in the Vancouver suburb of Port Moody. Eventually, they call up Deley live on air and tell him that he won the lottery.
Deley went on to say that he never plays the lottery but made an exception for the BC Children's Hospital lottery since the proceeds go to a good cause.
