“Super shock, complete disbelief and just really happy,” described Sandra Morgan after she and her husband, William Morgan, realized they won $500,000 after matching all four Extra numbers in the October 2nd, 2019 Lotto 6/49 draw.
“I was at the grocery store and Sandra went shopping when I decided I should check my tickets,” explained William. “When it said we won, I thought there was a glitch and had to get Sandra to check it again.”
Sandra and William, who purchased the winning ticket at the Lottery Ticket Centre in Northills Centre, said they are glad they started saying “yes” to the Extra. “We always enjoy buying the Lotto because it goes to a good cause,” says William. “But we only started buying the Extra three months ago because we kept hearing of people winning on the Extra numbers.”
On what the retired couple plans to do with its winnings, William said, “it was just our 50th wedding anniversary this year, so we will probably celebrate more.”
Sandra added, “We are also planning a trip to Hawaii to visit family and Las Vegas for some sporting events.”
