A woman from Dugald, Manitoba has more jingle to her jangle after claiming a $1 million Lotto 6/49 prize.
Pamela Smith purchased a ticket for the September 6 draw, but didn’t realize how much she had actually won upon checking its numbers.
“The clerk who checked my ticket got a little flustered when the prize amount popped up on the screen,” she remembered. “She said, ‘You won $10,000! No, I think it’s $100,000!’”
“Then, another customer piped up and said, ‘You won $1 million!’” said Smith. “I could hardly speak. The number kept going higher and higher — I was completely shocked!”
Smith plans to travel with her husband to Hawaii and visit her grandson in England.
The winning ticket was purchased at the Red River Co-op in Oakbank.
