A Brampton resident and immigrant from India has won a Canada 6/49 lottery jackpot of almost $18.8 million. Truck driver Gurbhej Sran and his wife Jaspreet won using a free-play ticket on March 22.
Jaspreet had a hunch they would win so she had their ticket checked. When the machine sent a ‘Big Winner, see retailer’ message, she was overjoyed thinking they had won $10,000. The couple only learned later it was for very much more.
The couple who have a newborn have not made concrete plans for the money. They know they want to send for their parents so they can share the good fortune, and Gurbhej wants to buy a dream truck and keep working.
If you’re not having quite so much luck, maybe it’s time to try a Canada lottery syndicate. It’s all the fun of winning without the cost of buying all the tickets yourself.
