$100,000 EXTRA win in Regina!
Leanne Lange will never forget the coffee break when she discovered her LOTTO 6/49 free play was a $100,000 winner. The Regina resident won on the June 5 EXTRA draw.
“I was in my office and about to go on a coffee break, so I decided to check my ticket,” she said. “I used the mobile app and couldn’t believe what popped up on the screen.”
“I took a screenshot of it and messaged my mom right away,” she continued. “My heart was just racing. Honestly, it felt too good to be true.”
The surprised winner said she has a couple ideas for her winnings.
“I’m going to pay off bills and share some of the win with my family,” she said. “But the biggest thing is that I’m going to pay off my mortgage.”
“Having that sort of financial freedom is a dream come true!” she continued.
Lange’s winning ticket was a free LOTTO 6/49 ticket she redeemed at The Edge Convenience & Fuels, located at 6370 Dewdney Avenue in Regina. She paid $1 to add EXTRA and won her prize by matching the last six digits of the winning EXTRA number – 5496292.
