Toronto, ON – Brinston resident Rita G. Cooper is living her lottery dream after winning a Guaranteed $1 Million Prize from the June 18, 2014 LOTTO 6/49 draw.
“It was my 48 year marriage anniversary so I bought an extra ticket. I checked the ticket at the truck stop and the clerk told me I won $1 million!” shared Rita, while at the OLG Prize Centre in Toronto to claim her prize. “I was so shocked I had to hang on to the counter for dear life!”
Rita immediately went to share the news with her husband who was having a bite to eat in the restaurant. “I gave him a kiss and told him ‘that’s the first time you’ve been kissed by a millionaire!’”
The 78 year old retiree plans to contribute to her grandchildren’s education, bank some of her winnings and treat her husband to a nice dinner out.
This winning ticket was purchased at the CNIB Lottery Booth in Walmart on Brookdale Avenue in Cornwall.
LOTTO 6/49 includes a Guaranteed $1 Million Prize Draw along with each and every regular draw. There have been 100 Guaranteed $1 Million Prize Draws to date. Forty-eight of the winning tickets have been sold in Ontario.
