Virginia and Donald Johnson are the retired lottery winners who now plan on traveling in style. Now that money won’t be an object, they are planning some luxury cruises

Suites with a balcony and dining at the captain’s table will be a couple of the luxuries they can afford.

That’s not to mention all the places they can visit now. The world is a boat ride away for this lucky couple.

It is quite the reward for the lottery fans who have been playing Lotto 6/49 since it started. It is their commitment to playing the lottery for so long has helped them make their dreams a reality.

Donald wasn’t convinced they had won when wife Virginia told him they were guaranteed winners, but soon came to realise she was right. “To me it’s amazing. I think it will really set in when I get that cheque,” Donald said.

Virginia is as humble. When asked how the huge win will affect their lives, she replied “I don’t think this changes my life, it gives me freedom – we have more freedom in our choices.” It will help to have that cheque in the bank and their tickets in hand for their next cruise.

They moved to Virginia, British Columbia from Winnipeg 30 years ago to begin their retirement.

It goes to show that no matter your age, lady luck can show up on your doorstep. Winning will change your life in an instant, like it did for these retired lottery winners.
