A Winnipeg woman who stopped to buy a lottery ticket after a trip to the dentist is smiling wider after winning $1 million.
Heather Guillemette won the July 3 Lotto Max draw, claiming one of the Maxmillions prizes.
“It’s crazy to think if I hadn’t stopped after the dentist, this wouldn’t have happened,” she said. “It’s just awesome.”
Guillemette purchased her winning ticket at Mac’s Convenience Store at 1021 McGregor Street. Her winning numbers were 4, 16, 29, 31, 35, 37 and 38.
“My knees started to shake. Honestly, I don’t even know how I got home after that,” she said after recounting her win at a Shoppers Drug Mart lottery kiosk. “All I can remember after finding out I won is the time; I won the lottery at 10:34:04.”
Guillemette plans on buying a house, helping out family members and taking a couple vacations.
“Somewhere hot, somewhere fun, anywhere!”
