It was supposed to be just a quiet Friday night in.
Both Paula George and Brad MacArthur were suffering from colds, so Brad stopped off to rent a DVD on the way home.
Whilst at the Star Market in Martins River, he also picked up a lottery ticket.
But it wasn’t until Sunday that they both perked up and went out for a drive. They grabbed a coffee and checked their ticket:
I was checking the ticket as Brad was reading the numbers off, not letting on that we had every number as he went along.
After he had finished, I asked him what it meant if we had all six numbers…
The couple will collect $6.5 Million for their winning ticket.
Brad plans to take some time away from his job in Alberta as an administrative contractor, but they do plan to keep their feet firmly on the ground.
