Canadian Lotto Player's Dream Comes True

Retiree, Dorothy Lahola, woke from a dream and heard herself shouting "I’m a winner! I’m a winner!" One week later her dream was fulfilled when a Canada Lotto 6/49 ticket she purchased pulled in a £1 million win.

The Kamlop's resident's dreams were turned into reality during the March 8, drawing, but she failed to realize it until a week later when she discovered someone in the area had failed to claim a Lotto 6/49 Guaranteed Prize.

Lahola thought it was unlikely that she was the missing winner, but she took her ticket to a local  7-Eleven store and had it checked.

When the store clerk ran her ticket through the checker she was surprised to see the screen fill up with zeros.

"Who won that?" she asked and then screamed, "Yahoo!" when the store clerk gave her the answer.
