Regina couple Ronald and Barbara Hitchens had been playing the 6/49 lottery for more than 30 years without winning anything significant. But that changed when their persistence was rewarded with a $1 million jackpot!
They only realized they had won something big when the ticket scanner jammed up. Though they are very happy with their win, the couple want to remain living a modest lifestyle. All they want to do with their money is to pay bills, go on a holiday, give a little bit more to selected charities, and stash the rest for later. They even had the same macaroni & cheese and hotdogs for lunch the day after their win!
