IT’S NOT AN APRIL FOOLS JOKE, WE REALLY HAVE WON A $7M LOTTO 6/49 JACKPOT

Christina and Tim Sevenoaks from Tsawwassen in British Columbia, Canada can buy her first house and her son is getting a dog after winning $7m in the March 28 Lotto 6/49 draw but it was a win people found hard to believe.

When the lucky Lotto 6/49 winner checked the results and saw that her ticket had matched 11-12-19-24-28-46 to win the jackpot, she immediately phoned her husband and asked him to re-check the result. “I couldn’t believe it at first. I lost power in my legs, I couldn’t walk,” said the shocked winner.

The lucky but disbelieving couple kept on checking the Lotto 6/49 result including using the lottery machine at the Tsawwassen Thrifty Foods store where she bought the ticket. Once the win was confirmed, Christina became scared of losing her jackpot winning Lotto 6/49 ticket and put it in her purse for safe keeping. In Ireland, a woman kept a €5.4m winning Irish Lotto ticket hidden in a sports bra.

The delighted Lotto 6/49 winner has been buying tickets for the past couple of years using random numbers unlike David Trapp from California, USA, who used the same five main numbers for years before winning a $61m Mega Millions jackpot.

When she told her sister and brother who live in Scotland her amazing news, they thought it was an April Fool’s Day joke. That also happened to English £53m EuroMillions winner Richard Maxwell when telling his wife about their win.

The Lotto 6/49 winners celebrate their 20th wedding anniversary next year but say they have no intention of quitting their jobs or moving away. Spending plans for the Lotto 6/49 jackpot include fulfilling the dream of buying a house, just like Tommy Parker from Scotland did after his £5m UK Lotto win. The Lotto 6/49 winner also wants “a white couch, a big comfortable white sofa.”

Her son, who is off to university soon wants his parents to buy him a dog. Christina joked, “I think he wants a blue heeler,” she said. “I don’t even know what that is.” Hopefully it’ll bring him luck just as a Labrador did for English £149,089 EuroMillions winners Jane and Alan Slater. It appears that a blue heeler is in fact an Australian cattle dog which is a coincidence as the couple have also won a trip to Australia
