Lat­est lotto win­ner ‘en­joy­ing the thought of hav­ing a mil­lion dol­lars’

Edmonton Journal - - CITY - TREVOR ROBB

One lucky Ed­mon­to­nian will be cel­e­brat­ing Christ­mas as a mil­lion­aire this year.

Lorna Al­tre says her par­ents were in town vis­it­ing and her fa­ther needed some­thing to do, so she gave him some money and asked him to pick up some lot­tery tick­ets.

“The week­end went by and sud­denly he showed up at my work with the ticket and told me I won the lot­tery,” Al­tre said in a Fri­day news re­lease. “I couldn’t be­lieve it.”

The $7 win­ning LOTTO 6/49 ticket was pur­chased on Sept. 26 at the 7-Eleven store lo­cated at 341 Kirk­ness Road NW.

Al­tre says it’s taken some time to get used to be­ing a mil­lion­aire and doesn’t have any spe­cific plans yet for her win­nings.

“Right now I’m just en­joy­ing the thought of hav­ing a mil­lion dol­lars,” she said.

“It’s such a great op­por­tu­nity and it’s very over­whelm­ing. Even­tu­ally I’ll make ac­tual plans for the money.”
