Kim Kelly purchased a life changing 6/49 lotto ticket at a Mac’s Convenience Store on 40 Ave. and 50 St. S.W. for the December 28th draw. On using a self-checker to see if she had a winner, she thought there must be some kind of error when she saw the numbers and that she may have won $8,000.
A call to her son made her realize that she had actually won half of a $16.2 million jackpot. And that is where the excitement set in.
Now she says she is very happy to have the ability to help out her family. As for herself, she wants to go somewhere warm for the winter. With temperatures at near-record lows, she’s got the right idea.
