Calgary local wins $1 million on LOTTO 6/49!

Eduardo Santos was running a few errands before leaving on a trip when he stopped to check a few lottery tickets. The Calgary resident soon discovered he had won $1 million on the October 18 LOTTO 6/49 draw!

“I had a couple tickets and thought I should check them before leaving the country,” he explained. “I scanned this ticket and saw so many zeroes – I had to check the ticket a few times to make sure I counted properly.”

Santos said his immediate reaction was much calmer than he expected.

“I put it together and got really quiet – I wanted to go home and tell my wife!” he laughed. “I did find it hard to concentrate when we left for our trip the next day – I almost forgot my bag at home!”

Now that he’s had some time to sit with his million-dollar windfall, the winner said he has a few ideas for his money: “We’re going to pay our mortgage and share with our daughters,” he said.

“It takes us a step closer to retirement, too!” he continued. “It’s a huge blessing!”

Santos purchased his LOTTO 6/49 ticket from the 7-Eleven at 815-2335 162 Avenue SW in Calgary. He won his prize on LOTTO 6/49’s Gold Ball Draw by matching the selection drawn on October 18, 2023 – 36921325-01, a white ball.
