After 25 years of playing the same lucky numbers, Guylaine Desjardins, a resident of Laurentides, won the July 1 Lotto 6/49 drawing. The new multimillionaire bought the lottery ticket at her workplace using the numbers 1, 12, 27, 30, 34, 49 and bonus number 35.
It took Desjardins several days to even realize she was holding on to a $6 million winning ticket, according to a news release from Loto-Quebec.
“Wait, let me go get my glasses!” she told lottery officials, when she realized she won.
As health officals have mandated social distancing to curb the spread of the virus, Desjardins wasn’t able to receive her prize money like the winners before her. Therefore, lottery officials got creative in finding a safe way to present the winner with her winnings.
The lucky winner plans to use her newfound riches to buy herself a three-wheel motorcycle, spoil her two sons and travel once pandemic safety guidelines are lifted.
The convenience store, Dépanneur Lacelle, where she worked and purchased her winning ticket will receive a 1% commission of $60,000, according to Loto-Quebec.
