Prince George Lotto 6/49 win a family affair22/04/2014
Each week Prince George residents, Emily and Wilfrid Tremblay, buy a lottery ticket. Then, while talking to their daughter in Vancouver each week, they have her read the lottery numbers online so they can check them.
“It’s our regular routine for my daughter to read out the numbers while I check the tickets,” smiles Emily. “I thought she was reading back the numbers off my ticket. I had all the matching numbers on my ticket!”
The retired couple then went to the store to check the numbers at the retailer. The Tremblay’s carefully folded the ticket up and went straight home to call the rest of the family to share the good news.
“This really is a dream come true,” laughs Wilfrid.
The winning ticket for the March 8 Lotto 6/49 draw was purchased at the Superstore on Ferry Avenue in Prince George.
With their prize winnings, the Tremblay’s plan to buy a house in Vancouver, closer to their family.
Lotto 6/49 is a nationwide lottery game drawn on Wednesdays and Saturdays after 6 p.m. (PT). Players can purchase tickets at any lottery retailer or at PlayNow.com.
