Hawaii trip and house hunt­ing on the hori­zon

Edmonton Journal - - CITY - NICOLE BERGOT

Ed­mon­ton’s lat­est lotto jack­pot win­ner plans to hit the beach and buy a house.

Diana Becker won the mil­lion-dol­lar guar­an­teed prize on the Lotto 6/49 Sept. 8 draw, said a Fri­day news re­lease.

Becker — who bought the ticket at the River­bend Square Shop­pers Drug Mart — says the re­al­ity of her new-found wealth is just now set­tling in.

“I checked the num­bers on­line, but I didn’t be­lieve what I was see­ing,” said Becker. “I took the ticket to the gas sta­tion and dou­blechecked on the self-scan­ner. I had to make sure I was see­ing the num­bers right.”

While Becker will squir­rel some of her win­nings away for re­tire­ment, she plans to buy a house and hit the beach.

“I’d love to go to Hawaii for a cou­ple weeks. I’ve been there be­fore and loved ev­ery sec­ond of it.”
