Alberta man wins $5 million LOTTO 6/49 jackpot!
Alan Connor thought something was wrong with his retailer’s ticket checker after he scanned his ticket for the January 11 LOTTO 6/49 draw. “All these numbers came up on the screen,” he remembered. “I thought it was some kind of code.”
Even after the retailer confirmed that the number was his prize amount, the Elk Point, AB resident didn’t realize the magnitude of his winnings. “I thought I won $50,000. But the clerk said, ‘No, you won $5 million!’”
Connor says that while he is still in shock about his multimillion dollar win, he has a few ideas about what to do with his windfall. “I am going to pay off bills and my mortgage for sure,” he said. “I also would like to travel to Eastern Europe and buy a new car.”
Connor purchased his winning LOTTO 6/49 ticket at Petro Canada, located at 115-4210 50 Avenue in St. Paul, Alberta.
He matched all six numbers to win the LOTTO 6/49 jackpot. His winning numbers were 2, 3, 7, 18, 24, and 26. Connor said that he has been playing those numbers for 20 years.
