      Another multimillionaire is living in the Lower Mainland—and her fortune didn't come from real estate.

      Delta resident Christina Sevenoaks found an even easier way to get rich: she bought a 6/49 lottery ticket.

      And when her numbers came up on March 28, she realized that she was suddenly rich.

      How rich? Try $7-million rich.

      "I could barely make out the words when I called my husband to share the news," Sevenoaks said in a B.C. Lottery Corporation news release. "It was like an out-of-body experience."

      Yet she still plans on keeping her job.

      One of the upsides is that she can buy a new house and a new truck.

      "My son has always wanted a dog but we could never have one living in an apartment," she revealed.

      Sevenoaks bought her ticket at Thrifty Foods in Tsawwassen.
