“Is this for real?” Warman resident takes home $100,000
A Warman resident is $100,000 richer thanks to the EXTRA she added to her ticket for the Nov. 5 LOTTO 6/49 draw.
Kim Schneider purchased her ticket on Nov. 3 at the Warman Convenience Store at 38-810 Centennial Blvd in Warman.
When she scanned her ticket on the Lotto Spot app several weeks later, Schneider thought she had won $1. But after a second look, she realized she had missed several zeroes and had won $100,000!
Feeling excited, Schneider took a screenshot and ran downstairs to share the news with her partner.
“He thought I was joking and told me to scan it again,” she recalled as she claimed her prize. So, he scanned it on the app on his phone too and confirmed that the win was $100,000.
“I was so excited that night,” she added. “Like, is this for real?!”
“I was in shock,” Schneider continued. “I just didn’t believe what I had seen. I never win!”
Immediately after discovering her win, Schneider had one exciting idea in mind.
“That night, I said I was buying a Skidoo!” she said with a laugh.
The winner also said she plans to invest her money.
