After Canada experienced a week of lottery fever in a bid to produce a winner of the $41 million jackpot boasted by Lotto 649, many have been waiting in anticipation for news on the winners of Lotto 649 which was finally won and shared between two lucky players after the draw on Saturday 20th March. One Lotto 649 winner comes forward to claim her $20.6 million prize which she won after purchasing two $2 Quick Pick tickets from London, Ontario, but the other winner from Edmondon is yet to come forward.
Bonnie Preece, a 49 year old cashier from Ontario, has spoken of her win which she shares with her husband and has said she had to call her sister is disbelief to check the numbers on the winning lottery ticket.
As with most lottery winners, the first thing on the cards for this lucky Lotto 649 winner is to buy her first home which until now has been unaffordable and a new car. Bonnie’s husband suffered a heart attack just seven months ago and this newfound wealth will open up a whole new world for him and the couple plan to take a dream vacation to visit Scotland and England.
Players in Canada who buy lottery tickets for Lotto 649 this week will be playing for a jackpot of and estimated $3.5 million. However, there is likely to be more excitement for Canadian Lottery players this week with another of their lottery games. Tickets sales are likely to hit fever pitch again now that the Lotto Max jackpot reaches a staggering $15 million.
