Victoria’s Glen Fraser is busy planning more family getaways and an earlier retirement after purchasing a Lotto 6/49 ticket on PlayNow.com and matching 6/6 numbers on the April 6 draw to win $2.5 million.
“I got an email from PlayNow.com saying I’d won a prize; I just assumed it was another free play,” said Fraser. Quickly realizing he’d won a big prize, he fell into a state of disbelief. “I turned white, I couldn’t talk, I couldn’t speak…I finally mumbled the news to my wife and we both started crying, then screaming!”
Fraser says the big win means he has more opportunities in life. In addition to investing his winnings, he’ll be taking his family on more camping trips, planning a big birthday celebration “somewhere hot” and preparing to retire at least 10 years earlier than expected.
“I always think of playing the lottery as something for fun. I never expected a big win!”
