A Winnipeg woman plans to pay off her condo after winning $1 million on a recent Lotto 6/49 draw.

Theresa Marcelino had the winning numbers to the January 30 ticket, which she purchased at Kim’s Lottery Link in Winnipeg Square.

“It’s so surreal,” she said. “One minute I was scanning a Zing ticket and winning $10, the next I was counting the zeroes in one million dollars. It sounds so funny now, but I was really excited about winning $10!”

Marcelino says her windfall doesn’t seem real yet.

“It feels like I’m in a dream — a really awesome dream!”

Aside from her condo and paying some bills, she also plans to share some of her winnings with her daughter.
