People who play the lottery usually dream of the things they would do if they hit a big jackpot. Maureen Fielding of Calgary had once promised her daughter a new laptop, a new car, and a dog should she be blessed with a big jackpot. When she bought a 6/49 ticket at the Superstore on Country Hills Blvd on July 7, she had no idea it would change her life.
When Fielding used the self-checker at the same store the next day, she discovered she had won $5 million. Her daughter immediately remembered her promises, so her first purchase may be a dog.
Fielding is going to use part of the money to pay off bills and maybe buy a new home.
