Tumbler Ridge woman wins lottery
A Tumbler Ridge woman is $10 million richer after her numbers were drawn for the April 13 Lotto 6/49 jackpot.
Vivienne Mills said she plans to share her winnings with her two children and four grandchildren.
“I want to set the kids and the grandkids up right away,” Mills said in a news release issued Tuesday.
“We’re looking forward to paying off our grandkids’ education, their student loans and helping them buy a house.”
Mills said she also plans to spend a portion on herself.
“Well, I’d like to buy a new car,” she said. “Right now we have a truck, and it’d sure be nice to have a smaller car that’s easier to get into parking spots.”
Mill bought her ticket online through BCLC’s Play Now website. She’s been buying tickets from there for the last two years, and when an email notice came in saying that she had won, Mills admitted she thought it was a free ticket, or maybe a dollar.
“Then I saw a lot of zeros and thought I was seeing things so I woke up my husband and asked him to look,” she said.
