$123,265 LOTTO 6/49 WIN IN REGINA!
Armando Rante took a break from running errands to check his lottery ticket. The Regina resident discovered he won $123,265.70 on the February 22 LOTTO 6/49 draw.
Rante checked the winning lottery numbers on sasklotteries.ca while he waited in the car for his wife and daughter.
“I saw there was a winner in Regina, and I hoped that it would be me,” he said. “When I started checking the numbers, I saw my dream come true!”
Rante didn’t have to wait long to share the good news with his wife and daughter.
“I was sitting in the car crying and shaking, and they asked me what was wrong,” he said. “I told them we won the lottery. They were completely shocked! We started hugging each other.”
Rante said he is thinking of a major purchase in the future.
“We’re going to save it for now,” he said. “But we’re thinking about buying a new house!”
The happy winner won his prize by matching five of the six main draw numbers and the bonus number – 21, 25, 26, 31, 41 and 11.
Rante’s winning ticket was a LOTTO 6/49 free play he won on a previous draw. He redeemed it at the Giant Tiger Store located at 2610 Victoria Avenue East in Regina.
