Million-dollar LOTTO 6/49 win in Edmonton!
When it comes to checking his LOTTO 6/49 tickets, Sheldon McNeill has a routine he likes to stick to. It doesn’t always end with a million-dollar win, but it did on May 8 when the Edmonton resident checked his ticket and discovered he had won that night’s Guaranteed Prize Draw.
“I like to check my lottery tickets before I go to bed,” he said. “I always check the numbers on the website and then scan the ticket on the app to see what I won.”
“With this ticket, I knew I had won $1 million before I scanned it,” he said. “I scanned it on the app anyway though – I wanted to see a million dollars come up on the screen!”
McNeill has a couple ideas for his windfall, including paying some bills and sharing with his family. His main plan, he said, will have to wait for a little while.
“When it’s safe to travel again, I want to go to Las Vegas,” he said. “I’d like to see the Green Bay Packers play the Las Vegas Raiders – I think that would be really cool.”
The happy winner said he would also like to travel to Wisconsin to see the Green Bay Packers play at home.
“I know I’ll have some fun with the money,” he said. “But the best part, the dream I’ve always had when I play the lottery is just knowing I’m set-up financially. To have that security and not have to ever worry about money, that’s amazing.”
McNeill purchased his winning LOTTO 6/49 and EXTRA ticket at Summerside Husky, located at 818 91 Street SW in Edmonton. His winning Guaranteed Prize Draw number was 20310429-03.
