$2 Million WESTERN 649 win in Edmonton!
Fred Jackson felt more than surprise after scanning his WESTERN 649 ticket and discovering he’d won the $2 million jackpot on the January 30 draw.
“I always hoped this would happen to me one day,” he said. “Now that it’s happened, I’m just so thankful.”
Jackson said he will take his time deciding what to do with his winnings, but there is one thing he knows for sure – he’s going to pay it forward.
“I’ve always wanted to be in a position to help others,” he said. “I’m going to put some money away for my children, and do what I can to help people in need.”
The Edmonton winner purchased his winning WESTERN 649 ticket at Betty’s Corner, located at 11603 Jasper Avenue in Edmonton.
Jackson’s player-selected numbers – 6, 7, 16, 17, 42 and 45 – are a combination of his favourite numbers. He won an additional $3,000 by adding the combination play option to his ticket.
