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.
