Gina-Lita Therrien and Yvon Turgeon from Quebec City in Canada are off on holiday soon and it’ll be a lot better now after winning $6.4m in the August 12 Lotto 6/49 draw.
Ms. Therrien tends to get up early in the morning and on August 13 she was up before her husband and checked the winning numbers in the previous night’s Lotto 6/49 draw. The couple regularly use the same numbers and she quickly realized that their numbers were winners and she woke up her husband with the news.
Ever since discovering their Lotto 6/49 windfall they have found it hard to come to terms with their big win and they had to keep checking that they really had won the jackpot. It was only when a cashier confirmed their win that the win started to become a bit more real. “We were like on a cloud,” said Gina. That’s like Reginald David from Virginia, USA, after his $1m Mega Millions windfall.
Their big Lotto 6/49 win has come just at the right time. A lot of winners decide to go on holiday after a major windfall. That’s what Barbara and Douglas Fink from Alberta, Canada, did after their $8.1 Lotto 6/49 win. However, these winners are already booked to be off on holiday in a few day’s time. “It falls to the point time, letting the dust fall back on our feet and digest the happy event,” Ms Therrien added.
Once they do return home, the Lotto 6/49 winners have several projects in mind. This includes Yvon returning to college to study languages. He also wants to launch a creative project sometime in the future so this big Lotto 6/49 win will be put to great use. His wife wants to keep her job in order “to spike his pay without counting”. “This gain comes to bring us a freedom to make choices and things for us”, she continued.
It’s the latest big lottery win in Quebec after Mark Lachance scooped $25m also playing Lotto 6/49. Also celebrating were a syndicate that won a $23m Lotto Max jackpot this month.
The couple’s winning Lotto 6/49 ticket was purchased from a branch office in Pierre-Bertrand. It successfully matched the numbers 05-08-13-25-33-45 and the Bonus 38. In all, they won $6,437,793 sharing the $12.8m jackpot with a couple from Ontario, Canada. Earlier this year, Paul Hindo from Ontario won a $22m Lotto 6/49 jackpot.
