Many Canadians have been generously compensated over the years for playing the lottery, with millions of dollars distributed across all provinces. Greg Gerla was selected by fate to be the next millionaire this time. At Lethbridge convenience store, the Calgary man acquired his Lotto 6/49 ticket, and it turned out to be the winner of the January 27 draw.
The Canadian will now be a million dollars richer thanks to the Lotto 6/49 game, making the current financial crisis a little easier to bear for him. Mr. Gerla cashed in at the Savers Convenience Store in the 1900 block of 13 Avenue N. on a free-to-play Lotto 6/49 ticket and saw his dreams come true with the draw on January 27.
He had many tickets to check, according to the winner, he was pleased at first to win CA$20 from one of them, but it was the last ticket that brought him the hefty CA$1 million rewards. In his words, in the beginning, upon realizing that he was the winner, he could not believe what he saw on the screen.
The fortunate Calgarian expressed his excitement over the winnings and revealed his plans on how to spend the money. His intention is to save some portion of the money, then put some into long-term investments. And he is determined, last but not least, to buy a brand-new motor vehicle as a treat for himself.
Due to its major rewards, Lotto 6/49 is largely known as a fan-favorite lottery, and this is what Stoney Creek’s 51-year-old resident recently learned. After his ticket was drawn as the lucky one in the February 13 draw, Hussein Ammar is the latest Lotto 6/49 winner. Mr. Ammar is going to share the CA$2,500,000 jackpot prize with another ticket bought in Western Canada.
It was informed by Loto-Québec that the Lotto Max jackpot is still unclaimed. The prize has reached the mind-blowing amount of CA$70 million and its winner is currently awaiting it. Players will have the opportunity to win the grand prize at the Lotto Max draw on Friday. There will also be 21 CA$1 million prizes up for grabs, according to the Crown agency.
After winning the substantial prize of CA$1 million, Natalie Jylha is the next name on the list of Canadian lotto millionaires. After realizing that her ticket was a winning one at the January 30 2020 draw, she got an early New Years’ present.
The British Columbia woman described the winning feeling as surreal and now is tasked with spending the money with her family.
Another Canadian lottery player also considered the Lotto 6/49 game very generous. This time to the Langley resident Eileen Bevis. The lady was fortunate enough to be drawn as the lucky ticket holder of the draw on January 23 2021, which gave her the amazing CA$4 million prize. What is even more incredible is that, on her way out of a convenience store, Ms. Bevis wanted to buy a ticket, which later turned out to be a pretty good deal for her.
