CANADIAN PLAYERS CELEBRATE LOTTO 6/49 WINS

The Lotto 6/49 has been producing plenty of winners in recent weeks and we have news of two big wins with one of them so thankful after making the right choice when buying his winning ticket.

A syndicate of five women from Drumheller, which is the dinosaur capital of the world and Strathmore in Alberta, Canada, are celebrating winning $1m in the November 22 Lotto 6/49 draw. One of the syndicate members, Dawn Bittorf, said they had been buying lottery tickets together for about four years.

It was Dawn who discovered their big win, but not until a week after the November 22 Lotto 6/49 draw. It took Daniel Chase from Michigan, USA, two months to find out he’d won a $1m Powerball prize.

Bittorf asked the self-service ticket checker to double-check her discovery and admits she was “shocked!” and added the syndicate are “all pretty surprised and happy.” The lucky Lotto 6/49 winners are still thinking about how to spend their windfall. Rommel Nerona also from Alberta, also won a million dollars playing Lotto 6/49.

A week after that November 22 Lotto 6/49 draw, there was more success with Brian Swain from Kirkfield in Ontario, Canada, won $73,715.50 in the November 29 Lotto 6/49 draw. The happy winner is a regular lottery player and sometimes uses his own numbers hoping to win a big prize. However, sometimes he chooses a Quick Pick ticket and that’s what he did when winning his Lotto 6/49 windfall. “I sure am glad I went with a Quick Pick this time!” he joked. Larry and Cynthia Clunes from Ontario bagged a $5m Lotto 6/49 prize after sticking with the same numbers for 30 years. However, Dione and Richard Buss from England, changed their numbers and it paid off with a £1.9m UK Lotto win.

He had to check his winning Lotto 6/49 ticket several times as he thought his eyes might be fooling him. But he was right and when his win was confirmed “it all started to feel real.” The 57-year-old retiree now plans to make an already-booked trip to Cuba with his partner, Barb, even more special. “It feels great to win! What an amazing feeling,” said the Lotto 6/40 winner.

It’s the latest big win in Ontario, but hopefully there won’t be any disputes as in the case of the recent $6.1m Lotto 6/49 jackpot win. Also celebrating was $261,854.80 Lotto Max winner Cristina Panopoulos-Rowe.
