KANATA RESIDENT WINS LOTTO 6/49 GUARANTEED $1 MILLION PRIZE
Toronto, ON – Sandra Pilgrim-Stark of Kanata has that “6/49 feeling” after winning a Guaranteed $1 Million Prize in the October 20, 2021 LOTTO 6/49 draw.
Sandra, a retired nurse, said she is a regular lottery player. “I was about to replay my ticket when I heard the winning jingle go off. I asked the clerk how much and she whispered, ‘A lot of money,’” she shared while at the OLG Prize Centre in Toronto to pick up her winnings. “After I found out I won $1 million, I stood in the corner of the store with tears in my eyes in disbelief.”
Sandra plans to pay her mortgage, share with her children and invest in her future. “I have a few places on my bucket list to travel, so I’ll put some aside for that.”
“I feel like I’m floating on cloud 9. It’s been a journey of disbelief and elation,” she concluded.
