$100,000 EXTRA WIN IN SASKATOON!
Candace Cournoyer won $100,000 on the April 29 EXTRA draw, and she credits it to a little birthday luck.
“I usually buy my lottery tickets on Fridays,” said the Saskatoon winner. “But my birthday was on the Thursday, so I decided to pick them up a day early.”
Cournoyer said she had a hard time believing her win at first.
“I kept scanning it and thinking, ‘That can’t be right,’” she said. “But I asked the store clerk to check it, and it turns out it was right!”
“I thought I was seeing things,” she said. “You always hope to win, but you never really expect it!”
The happy winner said she plans to put her winnings toward buying a new camper. She also wants to share the win with her family.
Cournoyer purchased her WESTERN 649 and EXTRA ticket at Vern’s Place Mohawk, located at 1610-11th Street West in Saskatoon.
