SASKATOON COUPLE WINS $100,000 ON POKER LOTTO
“It’s the best Thursday ever!” said Shaemun Franks as he showed his wife the winning screen on the WCLC Lottery Manager app.
Sherry, who was still half asleep when her husband came in, couldn’t believe her eyes.
The Saskatoon couple could not believe their luck when they discovered they won $100,000 on the February 21 POKER LOTTO nightly draw.
“I was like, ‘What is that? Is this for real?’” Sherry said, laughing. “I was really excited, but it’s hard to believe in the moment.”
The happy couple plan to put their winnings to good use by paying off their bills and investing.
Shaemun purchased their winning POKER LOTTO and ALL IN ticket at Stop N Go Confectionary, located at #3-110 Wedge Road in Saskatoon. They matched all five cards drawn in the nightly draw – Jack of diamonds, three of clubs, eight of spades, Queen of spades, and eight of clubs. They also won $2 on one of the other hands on the same ticket.
Saskatchewan Lotteries is the fundraiser for more than 12,000 sport, culture, recreation and community groups.
