A Medicine Hat couple find it difficult to believe when they discovered that a $24 Lotto 6/49 ticket they had bought two months ago has just won them $1 million.
The lucky couple whose names are Robert and Ann Cheverie, like many other people who had won such amount of money, did not know that luck was lurking in the corner for them when they were buying the lotto 6/49 ticket on Guaranteed Price Draw on August 29.
They got to know that they had won the million dollar lottery while they were shopping in a store in their locality one sunny afternoon.
When interviewed Robert Cheverie said, “I was walking around the store, and I heard Ann screaming and freaking out.” I got to her as quickly as I could, expecting something to be wrong. But was good – great , actually.”
With the money, the couple hope to retire from work earlier than planned. They also hope to complete some previous home renovation and go on a vacation on Hawaiian Cruise.
