Retiree, Robert McPhail, bought his winning ticket from the Shoppers Drug Mart. He only visited the store to pick up a newspaper and some chocolates for his wife, but felt a sudden compulsion to buy a lottery ticket.
"I bought two Lotto 6/49 tickets and one ended up being a big winner,” McPhail said; but this isn’t the first time the grandfather of four has won a large Lotto 6/49 prize. In 1992 he shared a $571,157 jackpot with 7 other players.
"I always thought I would win again," McPhail said. "I just didn’t know when. My family members keep rubbing me for good luck!"
