A Grimsby mother of two checked an existing LOTTO 6/49 ticket while she was buying new ones and was stunned to learn it was a $69,111.70 winner.
Susana Faughnan, 50, won the cash prize on a ticket from the September 15 draw.
“I went to purchase a ticket for the next draw and checked this one at the same time,” she shared while at the OLG Prize Centre in Toronto to pick up her winnings.
“I was in total disbelief – I had to check it twice!”
She plans to pay some bills and help her daughter with her education. “It’s just amazing – it still feels unbelievable.”
The winning ticket was purchased at Pioneer Snack Express on Greenlane Road in Beamsville.
