Best Present Ever!

A woman from Brinston in Ontario, who bought an extra ticket for Canada Lotto 649 drawing on June 18, 2014, to celebrate her 48th wedding anniversary had an extra reason to celebrate when the ticket won a Guaranteed CAD$ 1 million prize. She was picked up her prize on Thursday last week.

Rita Cooper, 78, checked her ticket at a local truck stop and couldn't believe her luck when she learned how much she'd won.

"I was so shocked I had to hang on to the counter for dear life!" Rita told staff at the OLG Prize Centre in Toronto and recalled the moment she broke the news to her husband.

"I gave him a kiss and told him ‘That’s the first time you’ve been kissed by a millionaire!'" she said.
