A Manitoba resident is still in shock after winning $1 million on a free Lotto 6/49 ticket.

Pat Tavener of Wanless, Manitoba won one of the lottery’s guaranteed prize draws on April 27.

“I won $10 on a ticket from a few weeks ago, and then I won $5,” he remembered. “Then I won a free play.”

It was that free play ticket that proved to be the lucky one.

“I probably looked over the numbers another 46 times before I called WCLC to confirm it for me,” he said of checking his numbers online.

Tavener doesn’t have any immediate plans for the winnings, but says it still feels like a dream.

“I want to take my time digesting this wonderful event.”

The winning ticket was from We Ste General Store, located on Highway 10 North NW in Wanless.
